Two of the three plasmids of the wild-type Rhizobium meliloti 41 (pRme41a and pRme41c) carry a copy of ISRm2, a 2.7-kilobase-long transposable element. ISRm2 is terminated by 22-base-pair (bp) inverted repeat sequences, exhibiting some homology to the inverted repeats of elements generating 9-bp target sequence duplication. Transposition of ISRm2 results in a duplication of 8 bp in length, rather rare among transposable elements. DNA sequences homologous to an internal fragment of ISRm2 were… CONTINUE READING
