The bacterial insertion sequence, IS, is a member of the large IS family. It transposes using a mechanism known as Copy-out–Paste-in. This is a major transposition pathway as judged by the number of transposable elements that use it. This pathway has not only been demonstrated to apply to various other members of the IS insertion sequence family, IS ( ), IS ( ), and IS ( ), but has also been adopted by members of at least seven other large IS families: IS, IS, IS, IS, IS, IS, IS, and their derivatives (see Siguier et al., this volume).

Figure 1

Organization of IS. (A) Genetic organization. The 1,250-bp IS is shown as a box. The boxes at each end represent the left (IRL) and right (IRR) terminal inverted repeats. The two open reading frames, (blue) and (green) are positioned in relative reading phases 0 and −1, respectively, as indicated. The indigenous promoter, p, is shown. The region of overlap between and , which includes the frameshifting signals to produce OrfAB, lies within IS coordinates 300 and 400. The precise point at which the frameshift occurs, within the last heptad of the LZ, is indicated by the vertical dotted line. (B) Structure function map of OrfAB and OrfA. HTH, a potential helix-turn-helix motif; LZ, a leucine zipper motif involved in homo- and hetero-multimerization of OrfAB and OrfA. Programmed translational frameshifting that fuses OrfA and OrfB to generate the transposase OrfAB occurs within the fourth heptad. The LZ of OrfA and OrfAB therefore differ in their fourth heptad. A second region, M, necessary for multimerization of OrfAB is shown, as is the catalytic core of the enzyme which carries a third multimerization domain. OrfA translation initiates at an AUG, terminates with UAA whereas OrfAB translation terminates within the right IR. The vertical line to the right of M shows the extent of the truncated transposase, OrfAB[1–149] described in the text. (C) Frameshifting window. The mRNA sequence around the programmed translational frameshifting window is presented. The boxed sequence GGAG is the potential ribosome-binding site located upstream of whose potential translation would be initiated at the boxed AUU codon. A ribosome (not to scale) is shown covering a series of “slippery” codons (AAAAAAG). A downstream secondary structure is also shown with the UAA, OrfA translation termination codon. The ribosome-binding site, slippery codons and secondary structure all contribute to the efficiency of the programmed −1 frameshift. The box at the foot of this figure shows how the anti-codons of two tRNA are thought to undergo re-pairing with their codons in the AAAAAAG motif.

Figure 2

Important sequence features of IS. (A) Organization of the IS inverted repeat (IR). The nucleotide sequence of IRL and IRR is boxed. Grey horizontal bars above and below indicate the internal regions protected from DNaseI digestion by binding of OrfAB[1–149], a derivative of the 382-amino-acid OrfAB truncated for its catalytic domain. The dotted horizontal grey bar indicates partial protection. The dashes within the sequence indicate mismatches between the left and right ends. The −35 and −10 components of the indigenous promoter p (blue boxes) and of p (green boxes) are shown. The conserved 5′TG tips are highlighted in red. (B) Organization of p. The “junction” promoter assembled on circularization of IS is shown as green boxes. The initiating transcript nucleotide (+1 p), the indigenous p (blue boxes) and the initiating transcript nucleotide (+1 p) are also shown. The conserved 5′TG tips are highlighted in red. (C) Secondary structure at the left IS end. The sequence of the “top” strand of IRL is shown together with the various transcription and translation signals. The symbols below are standard “dot–bracket” notations to indicate potential secondary structures formed with transcripts from top to bottom: from an external promoter, from p, or from p respectively. The brackets shown in italic simply permit the reader to identify the apical stem of the secondary structure.

Figure 3

Co-translational binding model. This schematic, not to scale, shows the insertion sequence (IS) with its left (IRL) and right (IRR) ends in green. RNA polymerase, RNAP, is shown in pale green in the process of transcribing from the promoter p. The mRNA is shown in dark green with a ribosome (blue) paused at the secondary structure shown in Figure 1C . The nascent OrfAB peptide (brown) is shown binding to IRL while undergoing translation. Above is shown the full-length OrfAB in a folded configuration proposed to prevent its binding to the IR as a completed protein.

Figure 4

The IS transpososome. The schematic shows the proposed configuration and composition of the different synaptic complexes (SCA and SCB) involved in different steps of the IS transposition cycle. (A) The excision complex SCA. The tips of the insertion sequence (IS), which are not protected by the truncated transposase OrfAB[1–149] ( Figure 2A ) are shown as green circles containing an arrowhead. The inverted repeats (IR) are indicated by thick black lines and the IS as green lines. Full-length OrfAB, which is presumed to cover the entire IR, is shown bound as a monomer to each end and to introduce a small bend in the DNA. Dimerization creates SCA, resulting in pairing of both IRs and in the formation of a DNA loop which includes the IS. Finally, a cleavage and strand transfer event results in the formation of a single-strand bridge between the IRs. (B) The integration complex SCB. Symbols are as in (A). In the left hand column, the IS circle intermediate with its newly replicated strand (dotted line) is shown to form a complex between an IR in the circle and a second in the target to form SCB. Cleavage and strand transfer is shown to form a single-strand bridge between the two IRs. The RecG helicase is thought to intervene to drive strand migration before a second cleavage and strand transfer results in integration of the circle ( ). This type of mechanism would explain the integration of the many different ISs observed to occur next to a resident IR in the target. The right-hand column shows an untargeted integration event that involves OrfA in addition to OrfAB. It should be emphasized that OrfA is known to interact with OrfAB. It also changes in some way OrfAB binding but it is not clear whether it remains in the complex.

(G) The newly integrated IS.
