Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Polypeptide: InsAB' transposase



Gene: insAB-1 Accession Number: G0-10535 (EcoCyc)

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Summary:
IS1 is the smallest insertion sequence in E. coli. It codes for three proteins, InsA, InsB and InsAB'.

InsAB' is the transposase for IS1 [Escoubas94]. Its translation depends on a -1 frameshift within the 3' end region of insA which allows translational readthrough into insB [Sekine89]. In the absence of this frameshift, the IS1 transcriptional repressor protein InsA is produced instead [Sekine89, Escoubas94, Matsutani97].

InsAB' acts preferentially near the IS1 sequence, thus promoting stable existence of the IS1 element within the genome [Matsutani97]. Its transposition function requires the H-NS DNA-binding transcriptional dual regulator [Shiga01].

The structural basis of InsAB' function has been examined [Ohta04, TonHoang04].
Note that although this page mentions "Exons/Introns" and "Spliced Nucleotide Sequence", it actually describes ribosomal frameshifting.
