Identification of the major protein component of the pneumococcal eclipse complex

Abstract

During genetic transformation of Streptococcus pneumoniae, single strands from native donor DNA enter competent cells, where they associate with an unidentified protein with a molecular mass of 15 to 20 kDa to form the eclipse complex. Using Western blotting, we identify the principal protein cofractionating with donor DNA in this complex as SsbB.
