Abstract This study determined the complete nucleotide sequence of the plasmid pSY3 from Sphingobium chungbukense DJ77. It was 35,735 bp long with a G+C content of 61.9%. Forty open reading frames (ORFs) were found. We predicted these ORFs would encode proteins associated with plasmid replication, conjugative transfer, transposition of genes, plasmid stability/partition, hypothetical protein, and some other functions. Genes for biodegradation were not found. No other plasmid homologous to pSY3 in the overall nucleotide sequence or gene organization could be found in the NCBI database.
