Whole-Genome Sequence of the Microcin E492-Producing Strain Klebsiella pneumoniae RYC492

Genome Announc. 2013 May 9;1(3):e00178-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00178-13.


Here, we report the draft genome sequence of the Gram-negative strain Klebsiella pneumoniae RYC492, which produces the amyloid-forming and antibacterial peptide microcin E492. The sequenced genome consists of a 5,095,761-bp assembled open chromosome where the gene cluster for microcin production is located in a putative 31-kb genomic island flanked by sequence repeats and containing a putative integrase-coding gene.
