Genome sequence of Klebsiella pneumoniae LZ, a potential platform strain for 1,3-propanediol production.


PMID 22843590

Abstract

Klebsiella pneumoniae LZ is a bacterium isolated from soil which can produce 1,3-propanediol from glycerol. Here we present a 5,431,750-bp assembly of its genome sequence. We annotated 9 coding sequences (CDSs) responsible for glycerol fermentation to 1,3-propanediol, 19 CDSs encoding glycerol utilization, and 134 CDSs related to its virulence and defense.
