The Mu gin function catalyzes a site-specific intramolecular recombination event which leads to the inversion of the Mu G segment. The subcloning of the gin gene next to the strong lac promoter carried on a multicopy plasmid is reported. Comparison of the protein patterns of Gin+ recombinant plasmids with the protein patterns of Gin- plasmids derived by in vitro mutagenesis allowed identification of the gin product as a protein of MW 21,500.
