Complete Genome Sequence of emm Type 14 Streptococcus pyogenes Strain HSC5

Genome Announc. 2013 Aug 15;1(4):e00612-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00612-13.


Streptococcus pyogenes causes a greater diversity of human disease than any other bacterial pathogen. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of the emm type 14 S. pyogenes strain HSC5. This strain is a robust producer of the cysteine protease SpeB and is capable of producing infection in several different animal models.
