The distribution of crossovers along unreplicated chromosomes of bacteriophage lambda has been examined by determining the density distributions and genotypes of particles in the progenies of crosses of density-labeled by ordinary parents in the presence of genetic blocks to replication. The Red and Rec systems combined produce crossovers primarily near the(More)
The wild-type Salmonella typhimurium strain LT2 contains six copies of the insertion sequence element IS200 which is unique to Salmonella. We have determined the chromosomal locations of all six copies of IS200 in strain LT2. This was done by mapping the positions of Tn10 elements inserted near each copy of IS200. Such Tn10 insertions were detected by(More)
We have recently discovered heme-containing signal transducers from the archaeon Halobacterium salinarum (HemAT-Hs) and the gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis (HemAT-Bs). These proteins bind diatomic oxygen and trigger aerotactic responses. We identified that HemAT oxygen-sensing domains contain a globin-coupled sensor (GCS) motif, which exists as a(More)
The nucleotide sequence of the insertion element IS200 has been determined partially, including the junctions between the element and the host chromosome at the insertion site. At most, two bases (A-A) are found repeated at the junctions and could be duplications of host sequences generated by the insertion of the element. No obvious sequence repeats,(More)
