Mu-like Prophage in serogroup B Neisseria meningitidis coding for surface-exposed antigens.

Abstract

Sequence analysis of the genome of Neisseria meningititdis serogroup B revealed the presence of an approximately 35-kb region inserted within a putative gene coding for an ABC-type transporter. The region contains 46 open reading frames, 29 of which are colinear and homologous to the genes of Escherichia coli Mu phage. Two prophages with similar… (More)
