Nucleotide sequence and expression in Escherichia coli of the recA gene of Neisseria gonorrhoeae

Gene. 1990 Sep 1;93(1):151-6. doi: 10.1016/0378-1119(90)90151-g.


The nucleotide sequence of the recA gene of Neisseria gonorrhoeae MS11 has been determined. The product of this gene can act as a recombinase in Escherichia coli, but does so with a decreased efficiency, probably because of the formation of mixed multimers with the equivalent E. coli protein.
