Abstract

Over the past few decades, microorganisms have made major contribution in natural product research, particularly those from the genus Streptomyces. Streptomyces humi MUSC 119T was previously isolated as novel streptomycete from mangrove soil in Malaysia. During the screening programme for bioactive strains, this strain was discovered to possess antioxidant activity – scavenging and reducing accumulation of free radicals in biochemical assays. Consequently, whole genome sequencing was performed to evaluate genomic potential of the strain. Based on our analysis, the genome size of MUSC 119T is described to be 10.01 Mbps with G + C content of 71.80%. Based on antiSMASH analysis, the strain possess great genomic potential, having nine biosynthetic gene clusters displaying high similarities to known gene clusters. These findings indicates that mangrove Streptomyces species like MUSC 119T may potentially play an important role in drug development process, while the availability of its whole genome sequences allows further manipulation to isolate and identify compound of interest.
