Functional analysis of a small cryptic plasmid pYS1 from Nocardia.

Bacteria of the genus Nocardia cause opportunistic infections of lung, brain and central nervous system, and cutaneous tissue. They are also producers of antibiotics and industrially important enzymes. As studies describing plasmids in this genus are limited, we have characterized a 4326bp cryptic plasmid pYS1 from Nocardia aobensis IFM 10795. Three open… CONTINUE READING
