The hup gene encoding the histone-like HU-type protein HSI of Streptomyces lividans TK24 was cloned and sequenced. The deduced N-terminal amino acid sequence, molecular mass (9851 Da) and pI (9.95) are in good agreement with characteristics of the HS1 protein. The hup transcript of about 500 nucleotides was detected. The 2.3-kb HincII fragment containing the hup gene hybridized with the AseI fragment C in the 9-10 o'clock region of the chromosome of S. lividans ZX7.
