Two types of recombinant plasmids containing 600 bp Nde I fragments that coded the bsr gene in opposite directions were obtained. Nucleotide sequencing shows that the bsr encodes a 140 amino acid protein with a putative molecular weight of 15560, the same as that of purified blasticidin S (BS)-deaminase (BSR), on sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel… CONTINUE READING
