Molecular evolution of the Escherichia coli chromosome. I. Analysis of structure and natural variation in a previously uncharacterized region between trp and tonB.

Abstract

We present the sequence of a 3500-bp region of the Escherichia coli strain K12 chromosome lying between the tryptophan operon and the tonB gene. Analysis of the sequence yields six open reading frames that have properties characteristic of genes for proteins. The reading frames are closely spaced, and putative transcription units and control sites compose… (More)
