Analysis of the complete Mycoplasma hominis LBD-4 genome sequence reveals strain-variable prophage insertion and distinctive repeat-containing surface protein arrangements.

Authors: Calcutt, Michael J and Foecking, Mark F

The complete genome sequence of Mycoplasma hominis LBD-4 has been determined and the gene content ascribed. The 715,165-bp chromosome contains 620 genes, including 14 carried by a strain-variable prophage genome related to Mycoplasma fermentans MFV-1 and Mycoplasma arthritidis MAV-1. Comparative analysis with the genome of M. hominis PG21(T) reveals distinctive arrangements of repeat-containing surface proteins. Copyright © 2015 Calcutt and Foecking.
