Structural homologies among type I restriction-modification systems.


Structural homologies among different restriction systems of Escherichia coli and several Salmonella species have been investigated by immunological methods using antibodies prepared against two subunits of the E. coli K12 restriction enzyme, and by DNA hybridization experiments using different fragments of the E. coli K12 hsd genes as probes. The results with both techniques show a strong homology between the E. coli K12 and B restriction-modification systems, weaker but nevertheless marked homology between E. coli K12 and the Salmonella systems SB, SP, and SQ and, surprisingly, no homology between the E. coli K12 and A systems.
