Abstract

This paper describes a novel approach, based on suicide transposition, to addressing the question of whether IS231A can give rise to cointegrate molecules through replicative transposition, even at a very low frequency. Comparative analysis was carried out with IS 10, another member of the same IS4 family. The results indicate that transposition of both elements is exclusively conservative.
