Nucleotide sequence of the transcriptional repressor gene korB which plays a key role in regulation of the copy number of broad host range plasmid RK2.

Abstract

The product of the korB gene of broad host range plasmid RK2 is one of at least two proteins which repress transcription of the essential replication gene trfA. We report here the nucleotide sequence of korB and the properties of its predicted polypeptide product KorB which has a molecular weight of 39,011 Da. KorB is likely to be a soluble protein with an… (More)
