The DnaAcos allele of Escherichia coli: hyperactive initiation is caused by substitution of A184V and Y271H, resulting in defective ATP binding and aberrant DNA replication control.

Abstract

Chromosomal DNA replication is regulated at the level of commitment to this biochemical pathway. In Escherichia coli, DnaA protein appears to regulate this process. A mutant form, DnaAcos, carrying four amino acid substitutions, is apparently defective in responding to regulatory signals, because it induces hyperactive initiation from the bacterial… (More)
