An E. coli gene coding for a protamine-like protein.


Several open reading frames exist in the region of the tRNATyr/1 gene of the E. coli genome. One such sequence encodes a polypeptide 33 amino acids in length that, on the basis of size and amino acid sequence, bears a striking resemblance to the protamines found in trout sperm. DNA from the transducing phage phi 80 tRNATyr/1 su3+ directs in vitro synthesis… (More)
