Abstract

It was found that a DNA segment containing genes for autonomous replication and its control (basic replicon) present in the IncFI plasmid P307 has homology with RepA, a basic replicon present in IncFII plasmids. The basic replicon in P307 is referred to as RepFIC and the homologous basic replicon in IncFII plasmids is referred to as RepFIIA. In 11 other IncFI plasmids studied a region that has homology with RepFIC and RepFIIA was demonstrated. Thus, of the several basic replicons present in IncFI plasmids, RepFIC is evolutionarily related to a basic replicon of IncFII plasmids.
