Abstract

We report the draft whole-genome sequence of Rothia nasimurium isolated from a porcine tonsil. The genome encodes a nonribosomal peptide synthetase predicted to produce valinomycin, a cyclic dodecadepsipeptide ionophore. Previously, valinomycin was known to be produced only by Streptomyces species and isolates belonging to the Bacillus pumilus group.
