Candidatus Amoebophilus asiaticus (strain 5a2) is an obligate endosymbiont found in Acanthamoeba sp. TUMSJ-321. This bacterial strain could neither be maintained outside its original host nor transferred to other amoebae. This organism is a member of the highly diverse bacterial phylum Bacteroidetes which includes the endosymbiont lineages represented by the sister taxa Candidatus A. asiaticus and Candidatus Cardinium hertigii, a symbiont of arthropods.
