Identification of promoter elements in mycobacteria: mutational analysis of a highly symmetric dual promoter directing the expression of replication genes of the Mycobacterium plasmid pAL5000.

Abstract

The 120 bp origin of replication (ori) for the Mycobacterium plasmid pAL5000 has been shown to comprise the binding sites for the replication protein RepB as well as the start site of transcription for the repA and repB genes, encoding the replication proteins RepA and RepB. In this work it is demonstrated that a third gene product, Rap, is involved in… (More)
