Chromosomal insertion sites for phages and plasmids.


Bacteriophages insert their DNA into host chromosomes either through transposition (as in phage Mu) or through site-specific recombination (as in phage X). Whereas Mu can insert almost anywhere along the chromosome, X has a single highly preferred chromosomal site. Certain plasmids also insert into chromosomes by site-specific recombination. The site… (More)
