Complete genome sequence of Lactobacillus plantarum JBE245 isolated from Meju

Authors: Heo, Jun and Uhm, Tai-Boong

Lactobacillus plantarum is widely found in fermented foods and has various phenotypic and genetic characteristics to adapt to the environment. Here we report the complete annotated genome sequence of the L. plantarum strain JBE245 (= KCCM43243) isolated for malolactic fermentation of apple juice. The genome comprises a single circular 3,262,611 bp chromosome with 2907 coding regions, 45 pseudogenes, and 91 RNA genes. The genome contains 4 malate dehydrogenase genes, 3 malate permease genes and various types of plantaricin-synthesizing genes. These genetic traits meet the selection criteria of the strains that should prevent the spoilage of apple juice during fermentation and efficiently convert malate to lactic acid.
