Genome Sequence of Vibrio Sp. Strain EJY3, an Agarolytic Marine Bacterium Metabolizing 3,6-anhydro-L-galactose as a Sole Carbon Source

J Bacteriol. 2012 May;194(10):2773-4. doi: 10.1128/JB.00303-12.


The metabolic fate of 3,6-anhydro-L-galactose (L-AHG) is unknown in the global marine carbon cycle. Vibrio sp. strain EJY3 is an agarolytic marine bacterium that can utilize L-AHG as a sole carbon source. To elucidate the metabolic pathways of L-AHG, we have sequenced the complete genome of Vibrio sp. strain EJY3.
