The complete genome sequence of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae L20 (serotype 5b)

J Bacteriol. 2008 Feb;190(4):1495-6. doi: 10.1128/JB.01845-07. Epub 2007 Dec 7.


There are 16 capsule-based serotypes of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae, all of which are capable of causing disease in pigs. Here we report the finished and annotated genome sequence of the reference serotype 5b strain L20. This strain has a rough appearance and readily forms biofilms, as is typical for most field isolates.
