IS91 is the prototype element of a family of bacterial insertion sequences that transpose by a rolling-circle mechanism. Although previously considered a rarity among IS elements, many new examples have been identified by sequence analysis of bacterial genomes. In this work we provide a summary of occurrences of IS91-like sequences in the GenBank database… CONTINUE READING
