Abstract

Four adjacent genes (, , and ) encoding different type I signal peptidases, were isolated on a 7860 bp DNA fragment from TK21. Three of the genes constitute an operon and the fourth is the first gene of another operon encompassing three additional, unrelated genes. A DNA fragment containing the four genes complemented an type I signal peptidase mutant when cloned in a multicopy plasmid. Clustering of four different type I signal peptidase genes seems, so far, to be a unique feature of .
