Nucleotide sequence of dnaB and the primary structure of the dnaB protein from Escherichia coli.

We have determined the nucleotide sequence of the dnaB gene and the primary structure of the dnaB protein of Escherichia coli (Arai, K., Yasuda, S., and Kornberg, A. (1981) J. Biol. Chem. 256, 5247-5252). The coding region for the dnaB protein is 1413 base pairs followed by double stop codons and preceded by a possible promoter sequence. The dnaB gene lacks… (More)
