(2004)CTnDOT is a 65 kb Bacteroides CTn that carries genes encoding for tetracycline resistance and erythromycin resistance. Previous studies had shown that the attDOT recombination site and integrase of CTnDOT (IntDOT) are ...
(2000)Bacteroides MTns forms a heterogeneous group of elements with conserved functional regions. But the conserved region on different elements is different. This raises a possibility that Bacteroides MTns are modularly assembled. ...
(2007)Sequence analysis revealed that the integrase of the Bacteroides conjugative transposon CTnDOT (IntDOT) might be a member of the tyrosine recombinase family because IntDOT has five of six highly conserved residues found ...
(2008)The third project is about the regulatory mechanism of RteB on CTnDOT. RteA and RteB are shown to be global regulators that regulate many genes on Bacteroides host. Whether RteB regulates CTnDOT and NBU1 excision directly ...
