Complete Genome Sequence of the Escherichia Coli PMV-1 Strain, a Model Extraintestinal Pathogenic E. Coli Strain Used for Host-Pathogen Interaction Studies

Genome Announc. 2013 Oct 24;1(5):e00913-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00913-13.

Abstract

Escherichia coli is a highly versatile species, causing diverse intestinal and extraintestinal infections. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of PMV-1, an O18:K1 extraintestinal pathogenic E. coli (ExPEC) strain that is used as a model for peritonitis in mice and was useful for deciphering the innate immune response triggered by ExPEC infections.
