Genome sequence of the cycloprodigiosin-producing bacterial strain Pseudoalteromonas rubra ATCC 29570(T)

J Bacteriol. 2012 Mar;194(6):1637-8. doi: 10.1128/JB.06822-11.


The cycloprodigiosin biosynthetic gene cluster has not been reported. We sequenced the genome of a cycloprodigiosin-producing bacterial strain, Pseudoalteromonas rubra ATCC 29570(T). Analysis revealed a probable cycloprodigiosin biosynthetic cluster, providing a good model for the study of cycloprodigiosin synthesis and regulation.
