Cloning and sequencing of the Haemophilus influenzae ssb gene encoding single-strand DNA-binding protein

Gene. 1994 Aug 19;146(1):101-3. doi: 10.1016/0378-1119(94)90841-9.


The ssb gene of Haemophilus influenzae was cloned and sequenced. The deduced protein possessed 61 and 60% identity with the Serratia marcescens and Escherichia coli SSB proteins, respectively. H. influenzae ssb was also shown to complement an E. coli ssb-1 mutation.
