Control of Co1E2 plasmid replication: negative regulation of the expression of the plasmid-specified initiator protein, Rep, at a posttranscriptional step

Abstract

The incA gene of CoIE2 is involved in the copy number control and incompatibility. Two promoters were identified around the incA gene. Transcription of the mRNA for the essential plasmid-coded initiator protein (Rep) mainly starts at a site about 140 by upstream of the initiation codon of the Rep protein. The second transcript (RNA 1) of about 115… (More)
