Complete Genome Sequence of Escherichia coli BE104, an MC4100 Derivative Lacking the Methionine Reductive Pathway

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 Jul 11;8(28):e00721-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00721-19.


In this announcement, we present the complete annotated genome sequence of an Escherichia coli MC4100 mutant strain, BE104. This strain has several methionine sulfoxide reductase gene deletions, making it ideal for studying enzymes that alter the redox state of methionine.
