Sequencing: The sequence was released 09/21/2002 by the Kazusa, and was described in DNA Res 9:123-30 (2002) Nakamura Y, Kaneko T, Sato S, Ikeuchi M, Katoh H, et al.."Complete genome structure of the thermophilic cyanobacterium Thermosynechococcus elongatus BP-1."
Abstract: The entire genome of a thermophilic unicellular cyanobacterium, Thermosynechococcus elongatus BP-1, was sequenced. The genome consisted of a circular chromosome 2,593,857 bp long, and no plasmid was detected. A total of 2475 potential protein-encoding genes, one set of rRNA genes, 42 tRNA genes representing 42 tRNA species and 4 genes for small structural RNAs were assigned to the chromosome by similarity search and computer prediction. The translated products of 56% of the potential protein-encoding genes showed sequence similarity to experimentally identified and predicted proteins of known function, and the products of 34% of these genes showed sequence similarity to the translated products of hypothetical genes. The remaining 10% lacked significant similarity to genes for predicted pro... [Click above reference link for full abstract]
