Tge transposon Tn21 has been transposed from R100.1 to plasmid pACYC184 and, from the resulting recombinants, to plasmid R388. The sites of insertion and the orientation of the element in several pACYC184::Tn21 recombinants have been examined. Restriction enzyme analysis of these recombinants has resulted in a detailed map of Tn21; this is compared with the published maps of the relevant part of R100.1. Heteroduplex analysis has shown short inverted repeat sequences at the ends of the element. With various in vitro-generated deletion mutants of Tn21, the internal gene necessary for transposition (tnpA) was localized within the terminal 4.3 kilobases of the right-hand end of the element. Genetic analysis of transposition of Tn21 suggests that the process proceeds via cointegrates. Since the end products of transposition are simple recombinants of the element and the recipient replicon, Tn21 must contain a gene that codes for a resolvase type of activity (tnpR gene).
