Abstract

Summary: A 31 141 bp continuous nucleotide sequence in the region from to pNEXT52 in the 168 genome was determined. In the region, there were 22 ORFs, two complete rRNA operons, and five tRNA genes. It was deduced that the function of one of the ORFs was similar to that of a sigma factor belonging to the ECF (extra-cytoplasmic functions) subfamily. The gene cluster reported previously for other strains of was also found in strain 168 and located in this region.
