Tn554, a transposon in Staphylococcus aureus that specifies resistance to erythromycin and spectinomycin, exhibits a high preference for a single chromosomal insertion site. If this site is already occupied by a copy of Tn554, the transposition of a second element is inhibited 100- to 1000-fold. This report defines the locus of the inhibitory activity and presents both a functional and a restriction map of Tn554. Fragments containing parts of Tn554 were cloned on an autonomously replicating… CONTINUE READING
