The location of Tn10 genes encoding tetracycline resistance and its regulation was determined by analyzing the properties of recombinant plasmids carrying partial HpaI digestion products of lambda::Tn10 transducing phage deoxyribonucleic acid. Within a 2,700-base pair region are encoded tetracycline resistance, the structural gene (tet) for a tetracycline-inducible polypeptide, and the regulatory elements for the induction of both the resistance phenotype and the polypeptide. Fusion of… CONTINUE READING
