One rRNA operon of all mycobacteria studied so far is located downstream from a gene thought to code for the enzyme UDP-N-acetylglucosamine carboxyvinyl transferase (UNAcGCT), which is important to cell wall synthesis. This operon has been designated rrnAf for fast-growing mycobacteria and rrnAs for slow growers. We have investigated the upstream sequences(More)

All the experimental animals had clinical symptoms suggestive of infection (weight loss diarrhoea, mucus in stools, etc.) which were not seen in uninfected individuals. The(More)
