The genome of Leuconostoc suionicum DSM 20241(T) (=ATCC 9135(T) = LMG 8159(T) = NCIMB 6992(T)) was completely sequenced and its fermentative metabolic pathways were reconstructed to investigate the fermentative properties and metabolites of strain DSM 20241(T) during fermentation. The genome of L. suionicum DSM 20241(T) consists of a circular chromosome (2026.8 Kb) and a circular plasmid (21.9 Kb) with 37.58% G + C content, encoding 997 proteins, 12 rRNAs, and 72 tRNAs. Analysis of the metabolic pathways of L. suionicum DSM 20241(T) revealed that strain DSM 20241(T) performs heterolactic acid fermentation and can metabolize diverse organic compounds including glucose, fructose, galactose, cellobiose, mannose, sucrose, trehalose, arbutin, salcin, xylose, arabinose and ribose.
