Complete Genome Sequences of emm111 Type Streptococcus pyogenes Strain GUR, With Antitumor Activity, and Its Derivative Strain GURSA1 With an Inactivated emm Gene

Genome Announc. 2017 Sep 21;5(38):e00939-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00939-17.


We present here the complete genome sequence of Streptococcus pyogenes type emm111 strain GUR, a throat isolate from a scarlet fever patient, which has been used to treat cancer patients in the former Soviet Union. We also present the complete genome sequence of its derivative strain GURSA1 with an inactivated emm gene.
