Abstract

Summary: The structure and distribution of IS990, a new DNA sequence with homology to characterized insertion sequences (ISs), were investigated. IS990 was related to IS elements of the IS3 family and was present as a single copy in all 21 investigated strains, two strains and two BCG strains. The sequence appears to be specific for the complex. The element carries two frameshift mutations and appears to be defective.
