Nucleotide sequence of an insertion element, IS1.


PSM2, PSM1, and PSM15 are small plasmids derived from R100 by spontaneous deletions at either end of the insertion sequence IS1. These plasmids were used to identify regions neighboring IS1 as well as the IS1 DNA itself, by cleavage with EcoR1, HindIII, Hae III, Hpa II, Hha I, Hinf, and AIu I. The nucleotide sequencing results demonstrate that IS1 contains… (More)
