Conjugative transposon Tn916 from Enterococcus faecalis DS16 encodes tetracycline resistance (Tet M) as well as determinants necessary for its own movement. Determination of the nucleotide sequence of Tn916 has been completed. The element is 18,032 bp in length and has an overall G+C content of 38.8%. Twenty-four potential open reading frames (ORFs) were identified based on sequence analysis. Similarities of the ORFs to other known determinants, which were revealed by database searches, are… CONTINUE READING
