The hemolysin-determining plasmid pAD1 is a member of a widely disseminated family of highly conjugative elements commonly present in clinical isolates of Enterococcus faecalis. The determinants repA, repB, and repC, as well as adjacent iteron sequences, are believed to play important roles in pAD1 replication and maintenance. The repA gene encodes an initiator protein, whereas repB and repC encode proteins related to stability and copy number. The present study focuses specifically on repA and… CONTINUE READING
