A 1.3-kb insertion sequence, termed ISAfe1 (U66426), from Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans ATCC 19859 is described. ISAfe1 exhibits the features of a typical bacterial insertion sequence. It has 26-bp, imperfectly matched, terminal inverted repeats and an open reading frame (ORF) that potentially encodes a transposase (TPase) of 404 amino acids (AAB07489) with significant similarity to members of the ISL3 family of insertion sequences. A potential ribosome-binding site and potential -10 and -35… CONTINUE READING
