Conjugative transposition: Tn916 integrase contains two independent DNA binding domains that recognize different DNA sequences.


Transposition of the conjugative transposon Tn916 requires the activity of a protein, called Int, which is related to members of the integrase family of site-specific recombinases. This family includes phage lambda integrase as well as the Cre, FLP and XerC/XerD recombinases. Different proteins, consisting of fragments of Tn916 Int protein fused to the C… (More)
