Abstract
The yeast two-hybrid assay revealed that Bacillus subtilis DnaD, a possible component of the primosome and required for replication initiation, intera cted with DnaA and DnaD itself. The mutant DnaD23 was incapable of interact ing with DnaA but retained interaction with the wild-type DnaD. These resul ts suggest that interaction between DnaD and DnaA is important for replicat ion initiation.
