Abstract

Bacteroides species harbor large self-transmissible integrated elements called conjugative transposons (CTns). In this paper, we report the first complete sequence analysis of the transfer region of a Bacteroides CTn. The transfer region contained 17 genes (designated orfA-orfQ). Only 2 of the genes shared sequence similarity with genes in the databases and only 1 of these genes was associated with self-transmissible elements.
