Intergenic sequences upstream of
(B). The positions of TSP
are shown. The nucleotides are numbered relative to each TSP (+1) and the positions of the 5′ ends of the pME series plasmids (Table 1) are indicated above the nucleotide sequences. Boxed sequences indicate the conserved sequences found upstream of the TSPs. A putative CRP-binding motif is italicized, putative −10 and −35 promoter sequences are underlined, and putative transcriptional terminator sequences predicted by the GeSTer program  are shaded. The arrows indicate palindromic sequences in the predicted terminators.
