Abstract

We have cloned and sequenced a 24.5 kb region of the 168 chromosome spanning the and genes. The region contains a ribosomal RNA operon, a tRNA gene set, and 17 ORFs, 16 with putative ribosome-binding sites. Four of the ORFs (ORF2, ORF14, ORF16 and ORF17) match to known genes (, thiA, and ). Eight of the remaining ORF products show similarities with proteins present in the databases, including an ATP-binding transport protein, a glutamate-1-semialdehyde aminotransferase, a thiol-specific antioxidant protein, a mitomycin radical oxidase and a ferric uptake regulation protein.
