Prévalence et diversité des éléments intégratifs conjugatifs et mobilisables chez les streptocoques

Abstract : ICE (« integrative conjugative elements ») and IME (« integrative mobilizable elements »), poorly known elements, are able to transfer themselves by conjugation and are involved in horizontal gene transfer. Some methods are available to detect genetic elements but none is able to detect ICE and IME. This training was conduct in a collaborative project between the LORIA and the laboratory DynAMic to create a computerized and automated method for the detection of ICE and IME in bacterial genomes. The methodology is based on the detection of proteins called ‘etiquettes’ (integrase, relaxase, coupling protein, VirB4) specific of these elements and on the detection of repeat sequences located at their ends. During the study, the prevalence and the diversity of ICE and IME in 124 streptococci have been studied: 108 ICE and 139 IME have been identified and delimited
