Abstract

The A subunit of DNA gyrase in mycobacteria is frequently subjected to splicing events as its gene, , harbours an insertion encoding an intein. Investigation of a number of different isolates of and demonstrated that the presence of GyrA inteins is not random but a taxonomic character specific for a given taxon at a species or subspecies level.
