Genome sequence of a serotype b non-JP2 aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans strain, ANH9381, from a periodontally healthy individual

J Bacteriol. 2012 Apr;194(7):1837. doi: 10.1128/JB.06770-11.


Gram-negative Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans can be distinguished (based on the promoter structure of the leukotoxin operon) into JP2 and non-JP2 genotypes, with the former found to be more pathogenic than the latter. Here we report the first complete genome sequence of a serotype b non-JP2 strain of A. actinomycetemcomitans.
