The nucleotide sequence was determined for the bacterial ice nucleation gene, inaX, from Xanthomonas campestris pathovar translucens X56S. Comparison of the nucleotide sequence of inaX to the previously characterized ice nucleation genes, inaZ from Pseudomonas syringae S203, inaW from Pseudomonas fluorescens MS1650, and iceE from Erwinia herbicola M1 revealed a 65.8%, 67.8%, and 68.8% homology, respectively. Within the internal, repetitive domain of the translated product of inaX are 153 consecutive octapeptide repeat units.
