The P1 plasmid replication origin requires the host DnaA protein for function. Two DnaA-binding boxes lie in tandem within the previously defined minimal origin, constituting its left boundary. Three more boxes lie 200 base pairs to the right of these, in the leader region for the P1 repA gene. We show that either set alone is active for origin function. One of the two origin boxes is relatively inactive. Constructs with just one of the five boxes are active for specific origin function as long… CONTINUE READING
