Molecular and functional analysis of pTAV320, a repABC-type replicon of the Paracoccus versutus composite plasmid pTAV1.
The second replicator region of the native plasmid pTAV1 of Paracoccus versutus has been identified thus proving the composite nature of this replicon. The minimal replicon designated pTAV320 (4.3Expand

Transposable modules generated by a single copy of insertion sequence ISPme1 and their influence on structure and evolution of natural plasmids of Paracoccus methylutens DM12.
We demonstrated that a single copy of insertion sequence ISPme1 can mobilize adjacent segments of genomic DNA of Paracoccus methylutens DM12, which leads to the generation of diverse transposableExpand

The SXT conjugative element and linear prophage N15 encode toxin-antitoxin-stabilizing systems homologous to the tad-ata module of the Paracoccus aminophilus plasmid pAMI2.
A group of proteic toxin-antitoxin (TA) cassettes whose representatives are widely distributed among bacterial genomes has been identified. These cassettes occur in chromosomes, plasmids,Expand

Plasmid pAMI2 of Paracoccus aminophilus JCM 7686 Carries N,N-Dimethylformamide Degradation-Related Genes Whose Expression Is Activated by a LuxR Family Regulator
ABSTRACT N,N-Dimethylformamide (DMF), a toxic solvent used in the chemical industry, is frequently present in industrial wastes. Plasmid pAMI2 (18.6 kb) of Paracoccus aminophilus JCM 7686 carriesExpand

Characterization of the replicator region of megaplasmid pTAV3 of Paracoccus versutus and search for plasmid-encoded traits.
The replicon of the pTAV3 megaplasmid (approx. 400 kb) of Paracoccus versutus has been localized to a 4center dot3 kb EcoRI restriction fragment and its entire nucleotide sequence determined. The G+CExpand

Comparative characterization of repABC-type replicons of Paracoccus pantotrophus composite plasmids.
The repABC replicons have an unusual structure, since they carry genes coding for partitioning (repA, repB) and replication (repC) proteins, which are organized in an operon. So far, the presence ofExpand

Molecular characterization of functional modules of plasmid pWKS1 of Paracoccus pantotrophus DSM 11072.
The complete nucleotide sequence of the small, cryptic plasmid pWKS1 (2697 bp) of Paracoccus pantotrophus DSM 11072 was determined. The G+C content of the sequence of this plasmid was 62 mol%.Expand

Characterization and sequence analysis of the replicator region of the novel plasmid pALC1 from Paracoccus alcaliphilus.
The replicator region of a low-copy-number plasmid, pALC1, of Paracoccus alcaliphilus JCM 7364 was cloned in a form of the minireplicon pALC100 (3.6 kb). The host range of the minireplicon embracesExpand
