An exceptional disposition of the elongation factor genes is observed in Rickettsia prowazekii, in which there is only one tuf gene, which is distant from the lone fus gene. In contrast, the closely related bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens has the normal bacterial arrangement of two tuf genes, of which one is tightly linked to the fus gene. Analysis of the flanking sequences of the single tuf gene in R. prowazekii shows that it is preceded by two of the four tRNA genes located in the 5… CONTINUE READING
