Disease relevance of seqA


High impact information on seqA

  • A mutant of the hobH gene reveals partial asynchronous initiation of DNA replication [2].
  • The effects of ectopic expression of dnaA were specific as analogous expression of another gene coding for a replication regulator, seqA, had no significant changes in growth and DNA synthesis in the cgtA mutant [3].
