Genetic instability and hypervariability in Streptomyces ambofaciens: towards an understanding of a mechanism of genome plasticity.

Abstract

Many Streptomyces species exhibit a very high degree of genetic instability which is usually manifested as genomic rearrangements such as large deletions. In Streptomyces ambofaciens DSM40697, two levels of genetic instability were previously described: (i) a basic genetic instability similar to that reported for other strains, and (ii) hypervariability, a… (More)
