Complete genome sequence of the probiotic Lactobacillus fermentum F-6 isolated from raw milk

J Biotechnol. 2015 Jan 20;194:110-1. doi: 10.1016/j.jbiotec.2014.12.010. Epub 2014 Dec 19.


Lactobacillus fermentum F-6 was isolated from raw milk in Inner Mongolia of China with desirable probiotic properties. The genome contains a circular 2.06Mb chromosome and has no plasmid. Further in silico analysis revealed its genetic basis for adhesion, exopolysaccharides production and citrate fermentation, which makes it a strain of high industrial potential.

Keywords: Exopolysaccharides; Genome; Lactobacillus fermentum.
