Abstract

The activity of a fourth conserved tyrosine site-specific recombinase (Tsr) of Bacteroides fragilis was characterized. Its gene, tsr19, is adjacent to mpi, encoding the global DNA invertase regulating capsular polysaccharide biosynthesis. Unlike the other described Tsrs of B. fragilis, Tsr19 brings about inversion of two DNA regions, one local and one located distantly.
