Genes coding for ribosomal proteins S15, L21, and L27 map near argG in Escherichia coli.

By M Kitakawa, E R Dabbs and K Isono


Mutants with alterations in the structural genes for ribosomal proteins S15, L21, and L27 were used in mapping the genes coding for these proteins. Results from P1kc-mediated transductions indicate that the genes for L21 (rplU) and L27 (rpmA) form a gene cluster and are located between argG and gltB at 68.1 min, whereas the gene for S15 (rpsO) is situated close to, but on the opposite side or, argG. The gene order in this region is concluded to be gltB-(rplU, rpmA)-argG-rpsO-mtr
