Abstract

Summary: An insertion sequence element of subsp. was isolated and its complete nucleotide squence determined. IS is 1470 bp in size and is repeated 10-12 times per genome. An open reading frame of 1200 bp was identified, encoding a protein product of 43932. This protein is highly similar to the predicted proteins of IS of , IS of and of . IS lacks terminal inverted repeats and flanking direct repeats but displays insertion site specificity.
