Cryptic prophages within a Streptococcus pyogenes genotype emm 4 lineage

The most important human pathogen Streptococcus pyogenes shares an intimate evolutionary historical past with cellular genetic parts, which in lots of circumstances carry genes encoding bacterial virulence elements. Throughout current whole-genome sequencing of a longitudinal pattern of S. pyogenes isolates in England, we recognized a lineage inside emmemmemmemmS. pyogenes appeared to represent predominantly MEW427-like isolates, whereas...
