Figure 7

Structure of the hok operon from plasmid R1. (A) Genetic map. (B) Relevant part of the active structure. Based on refs. 9495. (C) Proposed “on-site” standby site for 30S binding at the hok start, as exposed upon translation termination of either mok or hok. Extension of the third stem to 17 nt (5 bp) is based on thermodynamic calculations.
