The Escherichia coli HU-1 was cloned by use of mixed synthetic oligonucleotides (17-mer) predicted from a portion of its amino acid sequence. The amino acid sequence of the HU-1 protein deduced from the nucleotide sequence is in good agreement with the published sequence. The nucleotide sequence has a possible promoter and a typical ribosomal binding site upstream from the translational initiation codon (GUG) of the HU-1 gene.
