Four types of insertion sequences, ISI 191, IS981, ISS1 and IS1 194, were identified in Streptococcus thermophilus CNRZ368. The ISS1 elements can be divided into three subgroups, a;~and y sharing 75-85% nucleotide sequence identity. Mosaic elements resulting from recombination between ISS1 belonging to differentsubgroups were also identified. The
