Applied and Environmental Microbiology 76(14):4851 (2010) PMID 20511420 PMCID PMC2901719

Sequencing of plasmid pLM33 from the food isolate Listeria monocytogenes Lm1 revealed a molecule of 32,307 bp with a G+C content of 36.2%. The plasmid displays a mosaic pattern of identities common to several closely related L. monocytogenes plasmids isolated from food and clinical sources.
