Authors: Heaton, Michael P and Harhay, Gregory P and Smith, Timothy P L and Bono, James L and Chitko-McKown, Carol G

Mannheimia haemolytica is a bacterial pathogen that secretes leukotoxin (LktA) which binds to leukocyte membranes via CD18, causing bacterial pneumonia in ruminants. We report the complete closed genome sequences of a leukotoxin mutant and its parent strain that are frequently used in respiratory disease studies. Copyright © 2015 Heaton et al.
