Physical map of the Clostridium beijerinckii (formerly Clostridium acetobutylicum) NCIMB 8052 chromosome.

Abstract

A combined physical and genetic map of the single, circular, 6.7-Mbp chromosome of the NCIMB 8052 strain of Clostridium beijerinckii (formerly Clostridium acetobutylicum) has been constructed by using a combination of cloned DNA fragments as hybridization probes and a bank of strains harboring insertions of the conjugative transposon Tn1545. The positions of 81 restriction endonuclease cleavage sites and 32 genes have been determined. Eight genes concerned with solventogenic fermentation are found at three different locations. The chromosome contains at least 13 rrn operons, 11 of which have been located on the map. Their transcriptional orientation diverges from the presumed location of the replication origin.
