Abstract

A 15437 bp region encompassing the locus from the chromosome was cloned and sequenced. From the sequencing data generated and the results of homology searches, the primary structure of this region was determined. This region contains four known genes ( and ) and two genes, and , whose products display homology with p60 invasion protein of Six proteins encoded by putative ORFs contained an RGD motif (often involved in binding to macrophage integrins), while ORF1 and MoxR are probably transcriptional regulators. The rest of the putative products encoded by ORFs in the sequenced region showed little homology with the proteins contained in the databases and were considered to be unknown proteins.
