Region Notes
Annotation talks about how a piece of e. coli made it into this area. Not the greener region (GC rich). When that sequence is extracted and blasted against E. coli, get a very high quality hit (95%). There is an obvious "new thing" that is annotated as a hypothetical protein predicted by glimmer. Gene it replaces is a transposon (which wouldn't be missed). This sequence does not match anything in K12 MG1655. Its sequence, when 6-frame translated, yields one frame that contains several "CVI" amino acid sequences. This sequence hasn't been seen in other aa sequences from this genome. Obvious email/web address did not jump out. . Did not match anything in E. coli. No obvious words. Disrupted (removed) WT ABC transporters. . Did not match anything in E. coli. Did contain VCI. Interrupted WT "Type III restriction-modification system is named MmyCI" . Did not match anything in E. coli. Did contain VCI. Interrupting a WT transposon. Hit nothing else in NCBI NR database.
