Abstract

The isolation and characterization of a 2,122 bp DNA fragment from a Pseudomonas aeruginosa genomic library containing a 1,495 bp open reading frame (ORF) encoding a putative DNA helicase is described. The deduced amino acid (498 residues) sequence derived from this ORF, exhibited a high degree of homology to the rep and uvrD helicases of Escherichia coli (55 and 38% identities, respectively), and to those of Staphylococcus aureus and Haemophilus influenzae (43 and 39% identities, respectively), all of them belonging to superfamily I.
