Dickeya dadantii Ech703

Names Dickeya dadantii Ech703
Accession numbers NC_012880
Background Dickeya dadantii (strain Ech703) formerly Erwinia chrysanthemi is a facultative aero-/anaerobic phytopathogenic bacterium that causes soft rot diseases on many crops. This organism produces pectinolytic enzymes which break down plant cell walls allowing for the spread of disease. D. dadantii catabolizes glucose by a fermentative pathway and reduce nitrates to nitrites. Pectinolytic enzymes produce indole and grow at 36 degrees Celsius. It catabolizes (+)-L-arabinose, myo-inositol, (+)-D-malate, malonate, D-mannose, mucate, saccharate and mesotartrate, but does not catabolize (+)-D-trehalose, methyl a-glucoside, (+)-D-arabitol or sorbitol. It is isolated from soft rot and wilt of a various range of plants, such as Zea mays, Ananas comosus, Brachiaria ruziziensis, Chrysanthemum morifolium, Musa spp., Nicotiana tabacum, Oryza sativa and Solanum tuberosum, and from water. D. dadantii possesses two O-serogroups O: 1 and O: 6. (Adaptated from PMID: 16014461). (EBI Integr8)
