Complete Genome Sequence of Hypervirulent Streptococcus pyogenesemm3 Strain 1838.

Authors: Lei, Benfang and Flores, Anthony R and Yeoman, Carl and Liu, Mengyao

We report the complete genome sequence for Streptococcus pyogenes strain 1838 (type emm3) isolated from a patient with toxic shock syndrome. The strain lacked the speK- and sla-encoding prophage frequently encountered among emm3 strains and possessed an Arg66His mutation in CovR of the 2-component virulence regulatory system CovRS.
