Plasmid pGA1 from Corynebacterium glutamicum codes for a gene product that positively influences plasmid copy number.
The complete nucleotide sequence (4,826 bp) of the cryptic plasmid pGA1 from Corynebacterium glutamicum was determined. DNA sequence analysis revealed four putative coding regions (open reading frameExpand
