Title:
Role of pathogenicity island-associated integrases in the genome plasticity of uropathogenic Escherichia coli strain 536. 
Abstract:
The genome of uropathogenic Escherichia coli isolate 536 contains five well-characterized pathogenicity islands (PAIs) encoding key virulence factors of this strain. Except PAI IV(536), the four other PAIs of strain 536 are flanked by direct repeats (DRs), carry intact integrase genes and are able to excise site-specifically from the chromosome. Genome screening of strain 536 identified a sixth putative asnW-associated PAI. Despite the presence of DRs and an intact integrase gene, excision of th...    »
