The sequence of the imp operon of the plasmid TP110 (which belongs to the Incl1 incompatibility group) has been determined, and is shown to contain three open reading frames. This operon, involved in UV protection and mutation, is functionally analogous to the umuDC operon of E. coli and the mucAB operon of the plasmid pKM101, which belongs to the quite unrelated IncN incompatibility group. The umu and muc operons however contain only two open reading frames, coding for proteins of… CONTINUE READING
