    ..The homologies indicate that the genes for IF2 and the elongation factors are derived at least in part from a common ancestor. ..

    ..We suggest, therefore, that the genes for tRNAMetf2, a 15 kilodalton protein, the nusA protein and IF2 alpha, aligned in this order, are co-transcribed. ..

    ..It is concluded that the inter-species variation of the infB gene fragment is sufficient for its use in the characterization of strains that have aberrant phenotypic reactions. ..
