Multiple group II self-splicing introns in mobile DNA from Escherichia coli.

Abstract

By PCR (polymerase chain reaction) amplification and cloning, we have identified four group II self-splicing introns encoding proteins related to reverse transcriptases in natural Escherichia coli isolates belonging to the ECOR collection. One intron, IntD, interrupts a DNA sequence virtually identical to that of the previously described IS3411 Insertion… (More)
