Complete Genome Sequence of the Industrial Bacterium Ketogulonicigenium Vulgare SKV

Genome Announc. 2016 Dec 22;4(6):e01426-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01426-16.


Ketogulonicigenium vulgare has been widely used in vitamin C two-step fermentation, which converts l-sorbose to 2-keto-l-gluonic acid. Here, the complete genome of K. vulgare SKV, which performs better fermentation production than K. vulgare Hbe602, is deciphered to understand the key differences in metabolism between K. vulgare strains SKV and Hbe602.
