The sequence of the Salmonella typhimurium trpR gene and flanking DNA was determined on both strands. The DNA sequence predicts a polypeptide product of 108 amino acids with a molecular weight of 12,274 daltons. The TrpR protein of S. typhimurium differs by three amino acid residues from that of E. coli. The promoter/operator region of trpR is completely conserved between E. coli and S. typhimurium. The nucleotide sequence of the trpR sector of the S. typhimurium genome was 87.4% identical to the corresponding region of the E. coli genome. Within the protein coding segments of the two organisms, 94.4% of the amino acid residues were identical. In S. typhimurium, as in E. coli, there is a Palindromic Unit element (PU) between the translation termination triplet of trpR and that of a divergently oriented unidentified reading frame (URF-143). However, the PU segment of S. typhimurium is 85 nucleotides shorter than its E. coli counterpart.
