Abstract

We report the identification of a novel chromosome cluster of genes in Vibrio anguillarum 775 that includes redundant functional homologues of the pJM1 plasmid-harbored genes angE and angC that are involved in anguibactin biosynthesis. We also identified in this cluster a chromosomal angA gene that is essential in anguibactin biosynthesis.
