Genome sequence of Dyella japonica strain A8, a quorum-quenching bacterium that degrades N-acylhomoserine lactones, isolated from Malaysian tropical soil

J Bacteriol. 2012 Nov;194(22):6331. doi: 10.1128/JB.01637-12.


Dyella japonica strain A8 is a Malaysian tropical soil bacterial strain which shows N-acylhomoserine lactone-degrading activity. Here, we present its draft genome sequence. A putative quorum-quenching gene was identified based on the genome sequence analysis of strain A8. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first genome announcement of a member from the genus of Dyella, and this is also the first work that reports the quorum-quenching activity of Dyella japonica.
