We have sequenced and analyzed the genome of the previously unculturable clinical isolate Kluyvera intestini GT-16, gram-negative, rod-shaped, aerobic bacteriathat was isolated from the stomach of a patient with gastric cancerer.

Kluyvera intestini GT-16

Kluyvera intestini GT-16

Kluyvera intestini GT-16 is a previously unknown bacterium from the relatively newly described genus in the family Enterobacteriaceae. that infrequently causes infections in humans. The Kluyvera sp. is associated with human diseases, causing blood stream infections, urinary tract infections etc. The genetic analyses of Kluyvera intestini GT-16  identifieda significant number of antibiotic resistance genes, including those encoding resistance to metals, chemotherapeutic drugs, as well as genes of multidrug resistance efflux pumps.

The genome also contains such virulence factors as hemolysins, flagellar, and chemotaxis proteins, proteases and  peptidases .
