The basic replicon of Rhizobium etli CE3, like other members of the repABC plasmid family, is constituted by the repABC operon. RepC is essential for replication, and RepA and RepB play a role in plasmid segregation. It has been shown that deletion derivatives lacking the repAB genes have an increased copy number, indicating that these genes participate in the control of plasmid copy number. RepA is also a trans-incompatibility factor. To understand the regulation of the repABC operon, in this… CONTINUE READING
