Following the sexual phase of its life cycle, the hypotrichous ciliate Oxytricha nova transforms a copy of its chromosomal micronucleus into a macronucleus containing short, linear DNA molecules with an average size of 2.2 kilobase pairs. In addition, more than 90% of the DNA sequences in the micronuclear genome are eliminated during this process. We have(More)
In the SalI system, endonuclease activity can be only achieved in the presence of a functional modification gene. Thus, the DNA methyltransferase is involved in the control of restriction. By fusion of the restriction gene of the SalI system to the modification gene of the isospecific HgiDII system a hybrid type II restriction-modification system was(More)
During its life cycle, the hypotrichous ciliated protozoan Oxytricha nova transforms a copy of its chromosomal micronucleus into a transcriptionally active macronucleus which contains exclusively linear, gene-sized DNA molecules with an average size of about 2.2 kilobase pairs (kbp). The micronuclear precursors of two macronuclear DNA molecules have been(More)
IS1389, a new insertion sequence belonging to the IS3 family, has been identified in Xanthomonas campestris pv. amaranthicola. The genome of this bacterium contains at least 11 copies of the element, whereas no hybridizing sequences were detected in other Xanthomonas species [X. axonopodis, X. fragaridae, X. phaseoli, and X. (Stenotrophomonas) maltophila].(More)
The gene (xamIM) encoding the DNA methyltransferase of the XamI restriction-modification system from Xanthomonas campestris pv. amaranithicola (M.XamI) has been cloned in Escherichia coli and its nucleotide sequence determined. The sequence predicts a protein of 527 amino acids that contains nine conserved motifs characteristic of DNA amino(More)
The recR gene product is necessary for homologous recombination and recombinational DNA repair in eubacteria. We report the isolation and sequencing of the recR gene from Streptomyces coelicolor. It encodes a protein of 198 amino acids, with a predicted molecular mass of 22 kDa. The deduced amino acid sequence shows significant similarity to that of RecR(More)
