Bacillus amyloliquefaciens FZB42

Names Bacillus amyloliquefaciens FZB42
Accession numbers NC_009725
Background Bacillus amyloliquefaciens (strain FZB42) is a plant-associated bacterium, which stimulates plant growth and produces secondary metabolites that suppress soil-borne plant pathogens. Unlike the closely related B.subtilis 168, it lacks extended phage insertions. It possesses an unexpected potential to produce secondary metabolites, including the polyketides bacillaene and difficidin. More than 8.5 percent of the genome is devoted to the synthesis of antibiotics and siderophores through pathways that do not involve ribosomes. (EBI Integr8)
