Cloning and sequencing of the HU-2 gene of Escherichia coli.

Author information

Laboratory of Molecular Genetics, (Riken) Tsukuba Life Science Center, Ibaraki, Japan.


The Escherichia coli HU-2 gene was cloned using a DNA fragment from the HU-1 gene as a probe. The amino acid sequence of the HU-2 protein deduced from the nucleotide sequence is in good agreement with the published sequence. The nucleotide sequence has a possible promoter and a typical ribosomal binding site upstream of the translation initiation codon (AUG) and a possible rho-independent terminater site downstream of the termination codon (UAA) of the gene.
