A dnaB gene encoding a homologue of the Escherichia coli DNA helicase DnaB was cloned and sequenced in the thermophilic eubacterium Rhodothermus marinus, predicting a DnaB protein that harbors an intein. This DnaB intein is 428 amino acid residues long, has several putative intein sequence motifs (including two putative endonuclease motifs), and is capable of protein splicing when produced in E. coli cells. The R. marinus DnaB intein is a close homologue of a DnaB intein in the cyanobacterium… CONTINUE READING
