Mannheimia haemolytica is the major causative agent of shipping fever, a severe pneumonia in cattle causing high morbidity and mortality. A prerequisite of successful lung colonization by M. haemolytica is the necessity to adapt to the paucity of iron. The lack of genome information has precluded an assessment of the genetic repertoire available to M. haemolytica to adapt to low iron environments. To close this knowledge-gap, we have determined 90% of a virulent M. haemolytica serotype A1… CONTINUE READING
