Nucleotide (nt) sequences encoding the elongation factor Tu (EF-Tu), tRNA(Thr) and tRNA(Trp) from Chlamydia trachomatis have been determined. The environment of the EF-Tu-encoding gene (tuf), between two tRNA gene sequences, suggests that it is part of a tufB locus. The nt sequence and the deduced amino acid (aa) sequence were aligned with comparable sequences from other organisms and the resulting data bases were used to infer phylogenies. Phylogenetic trees based on aa sequences and nt… CONTINUE READING
