Resumen

The genome sequences from two strains of the acidophilic, autotrophic, chemolithotrophic proteobacterium A. ferrooxidans are available from genome databases. Bioinformatic sequence comparison revealed the existence in one strain of a putative integrative conjugative element (ICE), containing an entire set of clustered tRNA genes. ICE is missing in the other strain, suggesting that this element as well as the tRNA genes cluster is dispensable for the bacterium. Bioinformatic predictions suggest that the tRNA genes cluster might mainly contribute to the translation of ICE encoded genes.
