Genome sequence of lineage III Listeria monocytogenes strain HCC23

J Bacteriol. 2011 Jul;193(14):3679-80. doi: 10.1128/JB.05236-11. Epub 2011 May 20.


More than 98% of reported human listeriosis cases are caused by Listeria monocytogenes serotypes within lineages I and II. Serotypes within lineage III (4a and 4c) are commonly isolated from environmental and food specimens. We report the first complete genome sequence of a lineage III isolate, HCC23, which will be used for comparative analysis.
