Complete Closed Genome Sequences of a Mannheimia haemolytica Serotype A1 Leukotoxin Deletion Mutant and Its Wild-Type Parent Strain

Genome Announc. 2015 May 7;3(3):e00417-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00417-15.


Mannheimia haemolytica is a bacterial pathogen that secretes leukotoxin (LktA) which binds to leukocyte membranes via CD18, causing bacterial pneumonia in ruminants. We report the complete closed genome sequences of a leukotoxin mutant and its parent strain that are frequently used in respiratory disease studies.
