Abstract

From a cosmid clone of Streptomyces ambofaciens containing the dnaA and gyrAB genes, a 2.7-kb self-replicating DNA fragment containing the chromosome replication origin oriC was isolated. This cosmid was previously maped physically to a region near the middle of the 8-Mb linear chromosomal DNA. A pulsed-field gel electrophoresis time-course analysis revealed that sequences flanking oriC were overrepresented relative to the rest of the chromosomal DNA during rapid growth, indicating that this origin is active. In addition, the terminal regions of the chromosomal DNA showed a slight overrepresentation at the onset of stationary phase.
