Phylogenetic analysis of mycoplasmas based on Hsp70 sequences: cloning of the dnaK (hsp70) gene region of Mycoplasma capricolum.

A 5.0-kb region containing the hsp70 (dnaK) gene was cloned from Mycoplasma capricolum and sequenced. In addition to the hsp70 gene, this sequence region also contained the complete sequences for the grpE and orfA genes and partial sequences for the clpB and dnaJ genes. The order of the above gene sequences in the cloned fragment was found to be clpB-orfA-grpE-hsp70-dnaJ, which is similar to the order seen in various other gram-positive groups of bacteria. The Hsp70 homologs from two mycoplasma… CONTINUE READING
