Two strains of Pseudomonas putida, Psp-LUP and Psp-SPAR, capable of growth on the quinolizidine alkaloids, lupanine and sparteine respectively, were studied here. We report the isolation of Psp-SPAR and the complete genome sequencing of both bacteria. Both were confirmed to belong to P. putida, Psp-LUP close to the type isolate of the species (NBRC14164T) and Psp-SPAR close to strains KT2440 and F1. Psp-SPAR did not grow on lupanine but did contain a gene encoding a putative quinolizidine-17-hydroxylase peptide which exhibited high similarity (76%identity) to the lupanine-17-hydroxylase characterised from Psp-LUP.
