Nucleotide sequence of the D. radiodurans R1 ssb gene. The predicted amino acid sequence is shown above the nucleotide sequence for the DR0099 (red) and DR0100 (green) and below for the corrected ssb (blue) sequences. Predicted non-coding regions are shown in lower case. The nucleotides omitted in the published sequence are shown in bold in the corrected ssb sequence and are indicated by triangles. The reading frames affected by the previous errors are shown in boxes. The translational frameshift region predicted by the earlier sequence is highlighted by a gray box. The putative Ribosomal Binding Site in the corrected ssb sequence is underlined. The sequences are numbered according to the first predicted initiation codon in the sequences (TTG in DR0099 and ATG in the corrected ssb). The DR0099 and DR0100 genes have accession number NC_001263. The corrected ssb sequence, reported here, has accession number AY293617.
