A Unique Pair of GATC Specific DNA Methyltransferases in Mitsuokella multiacida

Abstract

Two GATC specific methylases together with Sau3AI isoschizomeric restriction endonuclease were partially characterized in Mitsuokella multiacida 46/5. This is the first report on the presence of solitary Dam methyltransferase alongside GATC specific restriction-modification system resulting in the unusual two-fold methylation of the GATC motifs.
