Complete genome sequence of acetate-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae L5-2 isolated from infant feces.

Acetate is an important metabolite in infants as it can affect metabolism as well as immune and inflammatory responses. However, there have been no studies on acetate production by Klebsiella pneumoniae isolated from infant feces. In this study, we isolated a K. pneumoniae strain, L5-2, from infant feces, and we found it produces acetate. The genome of L5-2 consisted of a 5,237,123-bp single chromosome and a 139,211-bp single plasmid. The G?+?C content was 57.27%. By whole-genome analysis of K. pneumoniae L5-2, we identified seven genes related to acetate production (poxA, pta, eutD, ackA, eutP, eutQ, and adhE). We confirmed acetate…
