Two new insertion sequences (IS1112 and IS1113) were identified in the genome of Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae, the causal agent of bacterial blight of rice. Three copies of IS1112 were trapped, one containing 1052-bp and the other two with 1055-bp. They all have 25-bp imperfect inverted repeats with a 3-bp duplication at the site of insertion. They contain an open reading frame (ORF) of 317 and 318 amino acid residues, respectively. IS1113 is 1306-bp, contains 25-bp imperfect terminal inverted repeats, and is flanked by a 9-bp direct repeat at the site of insertion. It contains an ORF of 395 amino acid residues.
