The nucleotide sequence of a 1622 base-pair segment of the broad host-range IncP plasmid RK2 (identical to RP1, RP4, R18 and R68) was determined. This region includes the trfA gene, encoding a trans-acting product essential for vegetative plasmid replication. The nucleotide sequence, together with the results described in the accompanying paper by Shingler & Thomas, indicates that the trfA gene encodes two polypeptide products (of 382 and 285 amino acids) by utilizing different translational… CONTINUE READING
