the start of the integrase

| posted 01 Mar, 2018 15:32
Cluster A phages have some of the most wet bench support for the confirmation of starts of their genes.
This includes the integrases. Serine integrases should use the same start as Bxb1, while tyrosine integrases should use the same start as L5.

Hi Welkin, how do we find appropriate start site if the phage has the serine integrase but can not use the same start as Bxb1? For example Herbertwm_Draft gene 30 (24304 - 25845 ) | pham 31609.
