A new gene, designated dinP, was found during E. coli genomic sequencing around the 5.5 min region. Its coding region is preceded by a sequence similar to the consensus binding sequence for LexA, the so-called SOS box sequence. The amino acid sequence of DinP (351 amino acid residues) has a strong similarity to the C. elegans hypothetical protein F22B7.6 and weaker similarities to the UmuC homologues in E. coli and Salmonella typhimurium and also to REV1 of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Another SOS operon (dinJ1 and dinJ2 genes) found in this region is also described.
