Mycobacterium smegmatis dnaA region and autonomous replication activity.


Two key elements that are thought to be required for replication initiation in eubacteria are the DnaA protein, a trans-acting factor, and the replication origin, a cis-acting element. As a first step in studying the replication initiation process in mycobacteria, we have isolated a 4-kb chromosomal DNA fragment from Mycobacterium smegmatis that contains… (More)
