Abstract

We have isolated a replication region (designated RepFVII) from the IncFVII plasmid, pSU233. Hybridization experiments showed that RepFVII has high homology to the RepFIII replicon of the plasmid pSU316 and, therefore, that pSU233 is another member of the RepFIIA family. We have also located the incompatibility gene () from RepFVII. The analysis of its sequence revealed the same organization described for several other replicons belonging to the same family.
