The complete sequence of the plasmid MccC7-H22 encoding microcin C7, isolated from probiotic E. coli H22, was determined and analyzed. DNA of pMccC7-H22 comprises 32,014 bp and contains 39 predicted ORFs. Two main gene clusters, i.e., genes involved in plasmid replication and maintenance and genes encoding microcin C7 synthesis, are separated by several ORFs homologous to ORFs present in IS (insertion sequence) elements and transposons. Additional 14 ORFs code for proteins with similarities to… CONTINUE READING
