Draft Genome Sequence of Streptococcus canis Clinical Strain TA4, Harboring the M-Like Protein Gene and Isolated in Japan from a Patient with Bacteremia

Genome Announc. 2018 Jan 18;6(3):e01469-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01469-17.


Streptococcus canis is an animal-origin β-hemolytic bacterium that can cause severe infections in animals and occasionally infects humans. Here, we report a draft genome sequence of an S. canis strain harboring the M-like protein gene. This strain was isolated from a patient with bacteremia (reported by Taniyama et al. [D. Taniyama, Y. Abe, T. Sakai, T. Kikuchi, and T. Takahashi, IDCases 7:48-52, 2017, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.idcr.2017.01.002]). The draft genome comprises 2,129,080 bp in 60 contigs.
