Impact of the excision of an ancient repeat insertion on Rickettsia conorii guanylate kinase activity.

Abstract

The genomic sequencing of Rickettsia conorii revealed a new family of Rickettsia-specific palindromic elements (RPEs) capable of in-frame insertion in preexisting open reading frames (ORFs). Many of these altered ORFs correspond to proteins with well-characterized or essential functions in other microorganisms. Previous experiments indicated that RPE… (More)
