The sequence of a region of the F plasmid containing the traLEKBP genes involved in plasmid transfer was compared to the equivalent regions of two IncFII plasmids, R100-1 and ColB2. The traLEK gene products of all three plasmids were virtually identical, with the most changes occurring in TraE. The TraB genes were also nearly identical except for an 11-codon extension at the 3' end of the R100-1 traB gene. The TraP protein of R100-l differed from those of F and ColB2 at its N terminus, while… CONTINUE READING
