The genome of Paracoccus denitrificans (strain Pd1222) consists of three distinct DNA molecules when separated by standard pulsed-field gel electrophoresis with apparent molecular sizes of approximately 2, 1.1, and 0.64 Mb. When the separated chromosomes are digested by restriction enzymes and sizes of resulting fragments are summed up, the three chromosomes are composed of 1.83, 1.16, and 0.67 Mb. Since their migration behavior relative to size standards is largely independent of… CONTINUE READING
