Bacterial repetitive extragenic palindromic sequences are DNA targets for Insertion Sequence elements

Abstract

Mobile elements are involved in genomic rearrangements and virulence acquisition, and hence, are important elements in bacterial genome evolution. The insertion of some specific Insertion Sequences had been associated with repetitive extragenic palindromic (REP) elements. Considering that there are a sufficient number of available genomes with described… (More)
