Cloning and sequencing of the tuf genes of Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2)

Biochim Biophys Acta. 1994 Oct 18;1219(2):543-7. doi: 10.1016/0167-4781(94)90085-x.


Two tuf genes are present in Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2), which have been cloned and sequenced. These genes show a high degree of nucleotide sequence identity to the tuf1 and tuf3 genes of Streptomyces ramocissimus: the tuf1 genes are 94% identical, the tuf3 genes 87%. S. coelicolor tuf1 encodes a protein of 396 amino acids, while tuf3 encodes a protein of 391 amino acids.
