pC194-type plasmids have been isolated from widely divergent species of bacteria: Gram positive, Proteobacteria, Spirochaetes and Cyanobacteria. We have examined the three essential replication elements of these plasmids, i.e., the Rep protein, and the origins of double and single stranded synthesis. Comparative analysis of Rep protein sequences from these plasmids indicates that they are highly divergent. Those isolated from Gram positive species fall into five groups: a Bacillus group, a… CONTINUE READING
