Inverse PCR was used to amplify major cold shock protein (MCSP) gene families from a diverse range of bacteria, including the psychrotolerant Yersinia enterocolitica, which was found to have two almost identical MCSP coding regions (cspA1 and cspA2) located approximately 300 bp apart. This tandem gene duplication was also found in Y. pestis, Y. pseudotuberculosis, and Y. ruckeri but not in other bacteria. Analysis of the transcriptional regulation of this MCSP gene in Y. enterocolitica… CONTINUE READING
