Complete Genome Sequence of Streptococcus mutans Strain MD, Which Produces Highly Potent Mutacins

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2020 Aug 13;9(33):e00616-20. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00616-20.


Here, we report the complete genome sequence of Streptococcus mutans strain MD, which produces potent mutacins capable of inhibiting streptococci. MD is a relatively uncharacterized strain whose genome information was unavailable. This study provides useful information for comparative genomic study and for understanding the repertoire of mutacins in S. mutans.
