A series of deletion mutants have been constructed for the gene analyses of transposable elements, ISXc5 and ISXc4, derived from Xanthomonas. At least two element-encoded polypeptides of 48 kDa and 40 kDa have been identified in the minicell-producing Escherichia coli strain, TC410. A study of the element transposition and cointegrate resolution revealed that the 48-kDa and 40-kDa polypeptides are both involved in translocation of the elements, the 48-kDa product being involved in transposition of the elements and the 40-kDa product being involved in cointegrate resolution.Show more [+] Less [-]
