Complete genome sequence of Liberibacter crescens BT-1.

Leonard MT, Fagen JR, Davis-Richardson AG, Davis MJ, Triplett EW - Stand Genomic Sci (2012)

Bottom Line: Comparison to other species in the Liberibacter genus, L. crescens has many more genes in thiamine and essential amino acid biosynthesis.This likely explains why L. crescens BT-1 is culturable while the known Liberibacter strains have not yet been cultured.Similar to CandidatusL. asiaticus psy62, the L. crescens BT-1 genome contains two prophage regions.

ABSTRACT
Liberibacter crescens BT-1, a Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterial isolate, was previously recovered from mountain papaya to gain insight on Huanglongbing (HLB) and Zebra Chip (ZC) diseases. The genome of BT-1 was sequenced at the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research (ICBR) at the University of Florida. A finished assembly and annotation yielded one chromosome with a length of 1,504,659 bp and a G+C content of 35.4%. Comparison to other species in the Liberibacter genus, L. crescens has many more genes in thiamine and essential amino acid biosynthesis. This likely explains why L. crescens BT-1 is culturable while the known Liberibacter strains have not yet been cultured. Similar to CandidatusL. asiaticus psy62, the L. crescens BT-1 genome contains two prophage regions.
