New accession number IntI1 transferred from S. enterica serovar Typhimurium 490 into A. baylyi

Posted by pjj000 on 14 May 2013 at 13:48 GMT

We were recently made aware of that we have submitted an erroneous sequence to GenBank (Accession number AM991977) and we have re-submitted the correct sequence. The new accession number for IntI1 transferred from S. enterica serovar Typhimurium 490 and into A. baylyi is KC625542.

We ask for the corrections to be made in:

1) Materials and Methods chapter “Construction of class-1 integron containing A. baylyi ” fourth line bottom up

2) The “Accession numbers” section second line
