Abstract

Pantoea sp. strain MHSD4 is a bacterial endophyte isolated from the leaves of the medicinal plant Pellaea calomelanos. Here, we report on strain MHSD4 draft whole genome sequence and annotation. The draft genome size of Pantoea sp. strain MHSD4 is 4 647 677 bp with a G+C content of 54.2% and 41 contigs. The National Center for Biotechnology Information Prokaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline tool predicted a total of 4395 genes inclusive of 4235 protein-coding genes, 87 total RNA genes, 14 non-coding (nc) RNAs and 70 tRNAs, and 73 pseudogenes. Biosynthesis pathways for naphthalene and anthracene degradation were identified. Putative genes involved in bioremediation such as copA, copD, cueO, cueR, glnGm, and trxC were identified. Putative genes involved in copper homeostasis and tolerance were identified which may suggest that Pantoea sp. strain MHSD4 has biotechnological potential for bioremediation of heavy metals.
