Figure 1

The organization of attTn7. A schematic representation of the attTn7 at the C-terminus of the glmS gene with the TnsD binding site is shown. The sequence of the E. coli GlmS protein (asterisk indicates the only amino acid within this 11 amino acid region that is not 100% conserved within all 25 glmS sequences examined), and the consensus attTn7 sequence were derived as described in the text (note that the least conserved nucleotides correspond to the third position of each codon).
