Data for: Complete genome sequence data of Lactobacillus sakei MBEL1397 isolated from kimchi
Lactobacillus sakei MBEL1397(=KCTC14037BP) was isolated from kimchi, a traditional Korean fermented food, in Gangwon province, Republic of Korea. MBEL1397 is an acid-tolerant strain with antimicrobial activity and α-glucosidase inhibitory activity, which might be preliminary indications of its probiotic properties. Complete genome sequencing of L. sakei MBEL1397 was performed using the PacBio RSII platform. MBEL1397 has a 1,994,569 bp circular chromosome with 41.04% G+C content. The genome includes 1,946 protein-coding genes, 66 transfer RNA genes, and 21 ribosomal RNA genes. The BioProject has been deposited at DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank. The GenBank accession numbers are PRJNA598112 for the BioProject, SAMN13698554 for the BioSample, and CP048116 for the chromosome.
