The 10.7 kilobase (kb) tetracycline resistance transposons Tn1721 and Tn1771, isolated from disparate sources, are completely homologous on the basis of heteroduplex analyses. Both transposable elements are capable of forming multiple duplications of a 5.3 kb portion encompassing the resistance genes (tet region). A model accounting for both, recA-independent translocation and recA-dependent amplification, postulates two direct and one inverted repeat as essential constituents of the… CONTINUE READING
