Replication of a plasmid containing two origins of bacteriophage.
Journal of Molecular Biology
A chimeric plasmid was constructed that contains a tandem duplication of the bacteriophage f1 origin of DNA replication. This plasmid replicates stably in the absence of phage. When cells carrying this plasmid are infected with f1, two new plasmid-derived DNA species are generated: a smaller, chimeric plasmid containing only one f1 origin of replication, and a miniphage, the genome of which consists of the f1 fragment that was located between the two f1 origins of the original plasmid. These data support the hypothesis (Horiuchi, 1980) that the nucleotide sequence recognized for initiation of plus strand synthesis in f1 DNA replication is also the signal for its termination.
