Gene VNG2411 in replicon chromosome

The orc7 gene and upstream region endows autonomous replication ability on non-replication plasmids containing the selectable mevinolin resistance marker. The upstream region contains a nearly perfect inverted repeat of 33 bp flanking an extremely AT-rich stretch of 189 bp (56% GC). One of two chromosomal inflection points occur here in cumulative GC-skew analysis used for prediction of replication origins. See Berquist and DasSarma J Bacteriol. 2003 Oct;185(20):5959-66 and Coker et al. J Bacteriol. 2009 Aug;191(16):5253-61. However, orc7 was not found to be essential based on the ability to delete the gene. See Berquist et al. BMC Genetics 2007 June 8;8:31.
