The 23-membered macrolide tacrolimus (FK506) is an important immunosuppressant that is widely used in the prevention of graft rejection and in the treatment of inflammatory skin diseases and immune diseases. We report here the draft genome sequence of the FK506 producer Streptomyces tsukubensis VKM Ac-2618D.
