Using precise excision as a model system, we have quantified the effect of direct repeats, inverted repeats and the size of the spacer between the repeats in the process of deletion formation in Bacillus subtilis. Both in the presence and absence of inverted repeats, the frequency of precise excision was strongly dependent on the direct repeat length. By increasing the direct repeat length from 9 bp to 18 and 27 bp, the precise excision frequency was raised by 3 and 4 orders of magnitude… CONTINUE READING
