ResumenRmInt1 is a group II intron of Sinorhizobium meliloti which was initially found within the insertion sequence ISRm2011-2. Although the RmInt1 intron-encoded protein lacks a recognizable endonuclease domain, it is able to mediate insertion of RmInt1 at an intron-specific location in intronless ISRm2011-2 recipient DNA, a phenomenon termed homing. Here we have characterized three additional insertion sites of RmInt1 in the genome of S.meliloti. Two of these sites are within IS elements closely related to ISRm2011-2, which appear to form a characteristic group within the IS630-Tc1 family. The third site is in the oxi1 gene, which encodes a putative oxide reductase. The newly identified integration sites contain conserved intron-binding site (IBS1 and IBS2) and δ′ sequences (14 bp). The RNA of the intron-containing oxi1 gene is able to splice and the oxi1 site is a DNA target for RmInt1 transposition in vivo. Ectopic transposition of RmInt1 into the oxi1 gene occurs at 20-fold lower efficiency than into the homing site (ISRm2011-2) and is independent of the major RecA recombination pathway. The possibility that transposition of RmInt1 to the oxi1 site occurs by reverse splicing into DNA is discussed.
