Abstract

SUMMARY: We have determined the nucleotide sequence of a 1496 bp stretch of chromosome that complements the mutation. The sequence contains three open reading frames. One of these is part of the gene, the other two, whose functions are unknown, are capable of encoding proteins with values of approximately 17000 and 8500. The use of integrational plasmids to delimit the transcriptional unit shows that the locus consists of one gene, which encodes a polypeptide of 74 amino acid residues and which is switched on after during sporulation of wild-type 168.
