Abstract

Two identical direct repeats of a 1275 bp sequence, designated IS, encompass the genes, which determine the catabolism of toluene, - and -xylenes to central metabolites, on the TOL catabolic plasmid pWWO. IS has a terminal inverted repeat of 12 bp (5‘GGGCACCTCGAA3’) and contains a major open reading frame of 280 codons. This ORF shows significant homology with ORFs encoded by a number of bacterial insertion sequences from and .
