Abstract

SUMMARY:

As part of the genome sequencing project, we have determined the complete nucleotide sequence of a element which is located between and The entire sequence of this element is 48032 bp in length, and contains 57 ORFs with putative ribosome-binding sites. Two of them correspond to previously sequenced and characterized genes, and Furthermore, seven ORF products identified in this element show interesting similarities with known proteins present in data banks, including the 105 immunity repressor, the 105 Cro-like protein and the SPP1 terminase. These results indicate the possibility that the element is a cryptic remnant of an ancestral temperate phage.
