The Escherichia coli chromosome contains about 300 bacterial interspersed mosaic elements (BIMEs). These elements, located at the 3' end of genes, are composed of three types of alternating repetitive extragenic palindromes (REPs). Based on the type of REP they contain and on their ability to interact with the integration host factor (IHF), BIMEs are subdivided into two families: BIME-1 elements contain an IHF binding site flanked by converging Y and Z1 REPs, whereas BIME-2 elements contain a… CONTINUE READING
