Names Wolbachia endosymbiont of Drosophila melanogaster
Accession numbers NC_002978
Background Wolbachia endosymbiont of Drosophila melanogaster. Wolbachia endosymbiont of Drosophila melanogaster, also known as Wolbachia pipentis strain wMel, naturally infects Drosophila melanogaster and is a member of supergroup A. The genome contains a large number of repetitive elements as well as proteins with ankyrin repeats that may be important in bacterium-host interactions. The chromosome also contains genes that encode a type IV secretion system. (NCBI BioProject: bp_list[1])
