Wigglesworthia glossinidia brevipalpis

General information

Species:  Wigglesworthia glossinidia brevipalpis
Species code: WIGBR
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Gammaproteobacteria; Enterobacterales; Erwiniaceae; Wigglesworthia (TaxID: 36870) [NEWT/ NCBI]
Description: Wigglesworthia brevipalpis lives inside the gut of the blood-sucking tsetse fly. The bacterium and fly live in symbiosis. The bacterium has genes involved in the synthesis of vitamins. Without the bacteria and vitamins the tsetse fly is sterile.
Properties: Presence of flagella: not known
Human pathogen: No
Interaction: Animal endosymbiont in Glossina (tsetse fly) (obligate endosymbiont)
Number of membranes: not known
