Dewar, SJ and Donachie, WD (1993) Antisense transcription of the ftsZ-ftsA gene junction inhibits cell division in Escherichia coli. J. Bacteriol. 175:7097-101


A 490-bp DNA segment spanning the junction between the ftsA and ftsZ genes inhibits cell division when present in high copy number. We show that this segment contains an antisense promoter and an antisense transcription terminator which define a new gene, stfZ.
