The chromosome of N. gonorrhoeae contains several complete expression genes coding for variant opacity proteins. DNA sequence analysis of two opacity genes derived from the same locus (opaE1) of two isogenic gonococcal variants reveals common and variable regions in these genes. Genomic blotting experiments using synthetic probes suggest gene conversion as a principle for the assembly of variant sequence information in opacity genes. The 5' region of opacity genes is composed of identical… Expand
