Draft Genome Sequences of Two Alginate-Overproducing Variants of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, PAO1-VE2 and PAO1-VE13

Genome Announc. 2013 Dec 12;1(6):e01031-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01031-13.


The small envelope protein MucE and the sensor kinase KinB are a positive and negative alginate regulator, respectively. Here, we announce the draft genome sequences of the alginate-overproducing variants Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1-VE2 (PAO1 with constitutive expression of mucE) and PAO1-VE13 (PAO1 with kinB inactivated). Both mutants were generated from a transposon mutagenesis screen.
