Kushneria konosiri X49T is a member of the Halomonadaceae family within the order Oceanospirillales and can be isolated from salt-fermented larval gizzard shad. The genome of K. konosiri X49T reported here provides a genetic basis for its halophilic character. Diverse genes were involved in salt-in and -out strategies enabling adaptation of X49T to hypersaline environments. Due to resistance to high salt concentrations, genome research of K. konosiri X49T will contribute to the improvement of environmental and biotechnological usage by enhancing understanding of the osmotic equilibrium in the cytoplasm. Its genome consists of 3,584,631 bp, with an average Gthinspace+thinspaceC content of 59.1%,…
Deinococcus koreensis SJW1-2Twas isolated from river water and was observed to be highly resistant to gamma radiation. In this study, we report a draft genome sequence which revealed that SJW1-2Tpossesses genes involved in nucleo- tide excision repair. The primary genomic information will aid in elucidating the DNA repair mechanism during ionizing radiation.
Rhizobium sp. strain 11515TR was isolated from the rhizosphere of to- mato in Laguna, Philippines. The 7.07-Mb complete genome comprises three repli- cons, one chromosome, and two plasmids, with a G?C content of 59.4% and 6,720 protein-coding genes. The genome encodes gene clusters supporting rhizosphere processes, plant symbiosis, and secondary bioactive metabolites.
Genome resequencing of D-lactic acid-producing Leuconostoc mesenteroides ATCC 8293 revealed 28 base errors in the version published in the 2017. Based on the revised genome annotation, four genes encoding putative D- lactate dehydrogenases were identified. The transcriptional expression of each gene was analyzed at different growth phases and the functionality of each gene was studied in Escherichia coli. Bioreactor studies indicated that L. mesenteroides ATCC 8293 produced D-lactic acid and ethanol at a ratio of 1.7:1 (g/g) regardless of the glucose concentration.
Acinetobacter ursingii M3 and Asticcacaulis excentricus M6 are plant growth-inhibiting bacteria that reduce the yield of the duckweed Lemna minor. We report here the complete genome sequences of A. ursingii M3 and A. excentricus M6, sequenced using the PacBio RS II platform.
Ralstonia solanacearum strain T523 is the major phytopathogen causing tomato bacterial wilt in the Philippines. Here, we report the complete chromosome and draft megaplasmid genomes with predicted gene inventories supporting rhizo- sphere processes, extensive plant virulence effectors, and the production of bioac- tive signaling metabolites, such as ralstonin, micacocidin, and homoserine lactone.
We report here the complete genome sequence of Lactobacillus johnso- nii strain Byun-jo-01, which was isolated from the murine gastrointestinal tract. The genome was determined using both PacBio and Illumina sequencing. L. johnsonii strain Byun-jo-01 contains a single circular chromosome of 1,959,519 bp, and its GC content is 34.7%.
We have identified the whole-genome sequence of Lactobacillus sali- varius DJ-sa-01, a potential probiotic strain for poultry, isolated from a chicken small intestine. We used the PacBio and Illumina platforms to obtain the sequence of the entire single circular chromosome.
Lactobacillus brevis strain 100D8 was isolated from rye silage and showed rapid acidification ability in vitro and antifungal activity against mycotoxin- producing fungi. We report here the complete genome sequence of L. brevis strain 100D8, which has a circular chromosome (2,351,988 bp, 2,304 coding sequences [CDSs]) and three plasmids (45,061 bp, 57 CDSs; 40,740 bp, 40 CDSs; and 39,943 bp, 57 CDSs).
Y chromosomes are widely believed to evolve from a normal autosome through a process of massive gene loss (with preservation of some male genes), shaped by sex-antagonistic selection and complemented by occasional gains of male-related genes. The net result of these processes is a male-specialized chromosome. This might be expected to be an irreversible process, but it was found in 2005 that the Drosophila pseudoobscura Y chromosome was incorporated into an autosome. Y chromosome incorporations have important consequences: a formerly male-restricted chromosome reverts to autosomal inheritance, and the species may shift from an XY/XX to X0/XX sex-chromosome system. In order…
Here, we report the whole-genome sequence of Sphingomonas sp. strain FARSPH, isolated from an insect cell line as a contaminant. FARSPH shared high identity with Sphingomonas melonis and Sphingomonas aquatilis strains. Due to this finding, we recommend taking this genus into consideration for cell culture quality control.
Here, we present an updated genome assembly of the diploid chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis strain RTP6. This strain is part of the global panzootic lineage (BdGPL) and was isolated in Dunedin, New Zealand. The assembly was generated using PacBio long-read and Illumina short-read data, allowing for the accurate phasing of heterozygosities.
Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) and serve as probiotic bacteria when consumed in adequate amounts. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of Lactobacillus reuteri Byun-re-01, isolated from mouse small intestine.
Lactobacillus reuteri SKKU-OGDONS-01 is a potentially indigenous probiotic strain isolated from the small intestine of a 27-week-old chicken. The complete genome of L. reuteri SKKU-OGDONS-01 comprises a single circular chromosome. Its length is 2,259,968?bp, with a G+C content of 38.9%.
Streptococcus thermophilus is one of the most used dairy starters for the production of yogurt and cheese. We report here the complete genome sequence of the industrial strain S. thermophilus N4L, which is used in dairy technology for its fast-acidifying phenotype.
