Molecular genetic analysis of ICEF, an integrative conjugal element that is present as a repetitive sequence in the chromosome of Mycoplasma fermentans PG18.
Mycoplasma genomes contain compact gene sets that approach the minimal complement necessary for life and reflect multiple evolutionary instances of genomic reduction. Lateral gene transfer may play aExpand

Partitioning of the linear chromosome during sporulation of Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2) involves an oriC-linked parAB locus.
Candidate partitioning genes (parA and parB) for the linear chromosome of Streptomyces coelicolor were identified by DNA sequencing in a series of seven genes located between rnpA and trxA near theExpand

Differential Posttranslational Processing Confers Intraspecies Variation of a Major Surface Lipoprotein and a Macrophage-Activating Lipopeptide of Mycoplasma fermentans
ABSTRACT The malp gene of Mycoplasma fermentans is shown to occur in single copy but to encode two discrete translated forms of lipid-modified surface protein that can be differentially expressed onExpand

Role of Escherichia coli rpoS and associated genes in defense against oxidative damage.
The first phenotype described for mutations in the Escherichia coli rpoS gene was hypersensitivity to near-ultraviolet radiation and to its oxidative photoproduct, hydrogen peroxide. Initially namedExpand

Conserved gene arrangement in the origin region of the Streptomyces coelicolor chromosome.
A 23-kb fragment of the Streptomyces coelicolor chromosome spanning the dnaA region has been isolated as a cosmid clone. Nucleotide sequence analysis of a 5-kb portion shows that the genes for theExpand

Gene organization in the dnaA-gyrA region of the Streptomyces coelicolor chromosome.
The gene organization has been determined for an 8-kb portion of the Streptomyces coelicolor chromosome close to the origin of DNA replication (oriC). Hybridization and DNA sequence analyses revealedExpand

The Mycoplasma fermentans prophage φMFV1: genome organization, mobility and variable expression of an encoded surface protein
The ≈ 16 kb genome of the Mycoplasma fermentansφMFV1 prophage is described, and its mobility, replication and effect on the mycoplasma surface phenotype are demonstrated. In various M. fermentansExpand

Competition among isolates of Salmonella enterica ssp. enterica serovar Typhimurium: role of prophage/phage in archived cultures.
Previously, we reported extensive diversity among survivors of Salmonella enterica ssp. enterica serovar Typhimurium that were stored for four decades in sealed agar stabs. Thus raising the question:Expand

IS1630 of Mycoplasma fermentans, a novel IS30-type insertion element that targets and duplicates inverted repeats of variable length and sequence during insertion.
A new insertion sequence (IS) of Mycoplasma fermentans is described. This element, designated IS1630, is 1,377 bp long and has 27-bp inverted repeats at the termini. A single open reading frameExpand
