Genome sequence of the 17-estradiol-utilizing bacterium Sphingomonas strain KC8. Academic Article uri icon


  • Sphingomonas strain KC8 is known for its ability to utilize 17-estradiol, a natural estrogen and an environmental endocrine-disrupting compound, as the sole carbon and energy source. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of the strain KC8 (4,074,265 bp, with a GC content of 63.7%) and major findings from its annotation.
