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.

Whole sequence alignment of phage regions between L. crescens and CandidatusL. asiaticus. The two prophage regions CandidatusL. solanacearum are homologous, and both share higher similarity with the prophage region in CandidatusL. asiaticus. Graphical representation obtained through Mauve [53].
