Identification of an insertion sequence located in a region encoding virulence factors of Streptococcus pyogenes

Berge, Andreas; Rasmussen, Magnus LU and Björck, Lars LU (1998) In Infection and Immunity 66(7). p.3449-3453
Abstract
An insertion sequence, IS1562, was identified in a Streptococcus pyogenes strain of the clinically important M1 serotype. IS1562 is located in the mga regulon between the genes coding for the M protein and the C5a peptidase, both important virulence factors. The same or similar insertion sequences were found in most S. pyogenes strains, but the chromosomal location differed among isolates.
