Genetic instabi|ity and its possible evolutionary implications on the chromosomal structure of Streptomyces

Abstract : Recent progress in the understanding of the chromosomal rearrangements in Streptomyces has allowed us to envisage the possible involvement of genetic instability in the evolution of the chromosomal structure. The characterization of recombinational events in the terminal parts of the S ambofaciens chromosome, as well as the observation by other groups that linear plasmids and chromosomes are able to interact, would provide an explanation for the very high levels of polymorphism seen in the terminal inverted repeats of different strains of Streptomyces.
