The complete 11,139-nucleotide sequence of transposon Tn1721 has been determined. It contains three 38-bp inverted repeats, and (in this order) a new orfI, a resolution site (res), genes encoding resolvase (tnpR), transposase (tnpA), tetracycline-resistance (TcR) repressor (tetR), TcR (tetA) and a truncated transposase gene (tnpA'). The modulator origin of Tn1721 from at least three separate sources is supported by the distinctive codon usages of orfI, tnpR/tnpA and tetR/tetA, and by sequence… CONTINUE READING
