The complete map of the Germany E. coli O104 genome released
Date:6/16/2011

Building upon previous efforts producing a high-quality de novo genome assemblies of deadly 2011 E. coli O104:H4 outbreak strain (http://www.genomics.cn/en/news_show.php?type=show&id=651), the BGI and their collaborators at the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf have now released the first complete map of the genome and plasmids without any assembly gaps. (genome publicly available at ftp://ftp.genomics.org.cn/pub/Ecoli_TY-2482/Escherichia_coli_TY-2482.chromosome.20110616.fa.gz and plasmids at ftp://ftp.genomics.org.cn/pub/Ecoli_TY-2482/Escherichia_coli_TY-2482.plasmid.20110616.fa.gz)

BThis final draft of the genome shows the disease strain has a circular chromosome 5,278 kbp in length, and three additional plasmids 88 kbp, 75 kbp and 1.5 kbp in size, respectively. The chromosome contains around 5,000 predicted coding sequences (CDSs), covering 87.09% of the genome. The biggest plasmid is highly homologous to a previously sequenced plasmid isolated from a horse and carrying additional multi-drug resistance genes; the smallest one is a so-called "selfish plasmid" carrying only two genes, one of which encodes a DNA replication protein; the other carrying the aggregative adherence fimbria I (AAF/I) gene cluster, which is associated with E. coli aggregation ability and virulence, and likely to play a role in the persistence of the disease.

BGI researchers found that the Shiga-toxin-encoding genes, responsible for most of the pathogenicity of the disease, were likely encoded by a viral prophage that integrated in the bacterial chromosome. Several insertion hotspots, including one nested multi-antibiotic resistant associated locus, were al
