A functional interaction between the putative primosomal protein DnaI and the main replicative DNA helicase DnaB in Bacillus.


In Gram negative Escherichia coli there are two well-characterised primosomal assembly processes, the PriA- and DnaA-mediated cascades. The presence of PriA and DnaA proteins in Gram positive Bacillus spp. supports the assumption that both the PriA- and DnaA-mediated primosomal assembly cascades also operate in these organisms. However, the lack of sequence… (More)
