To obtain a functional map of Tn5252, a 47.5-kb streptococcal conjugative transposon, a series of defined deletion and insertion mutations were introduced within the transposon. Interruptions at several regions were found to affect the conjugal transposition functions of the element in filter-mating experiments. The nucleotide sequence of the left terminus… CONTINUE READING
