Abstract

We have found a new insertion sequence (IS), designated IS downstream of the S10 operon in FDC Y4. IS the first IS element characterized in this organism, is 705 bp long and lacks terminal inverted repeats. This element displayed significant homology with IS Hybridization patterns of genomic DNA of seven strains with an internal IS probe varied depending on the serotypes, suggesting that IS might be a useful tool for epidemiological studies.
