A small cryptic plasmid isolated from Salmonella enterica Enteritidis called pVCM04 was sequenced and characterizated. pVCM04 is a 3583 pb circle molecule that showed no homology with other plasmids deposited in the GenBank. 12 ORF with more than 50 aminoacids were predicted using the ORF finder program. ORF1 and ORF2 showed homology with replication proteins of different plasmids. ORF 3-5 showed homology with mobilization proteins present in several plasmids; the others seven ORF showed no homology with genes deposited in GenBank. The pVCM04 possess a region with more than 500 pb that is not associated with none of the predicted proteins. This region is organizated in a G+C rich, A+T rich and two repeat direct sequences. The second repeat direct sequence contains a region of DnaA box connection (TTTACAC). This region is probably associated to the replication origin theta type. The phylogenetic relationship among replicase and mobilization deduced protein showed highest similarity of replicase proteins than mobilization proteins. Conjugation experiments showed that the pVCM04/pUC18 fusion not have a good ability to transfer, the plasmid stability test showed that the cells lost 60% of pVCM04/pUC18 on the first day of cultivation. The characterization suggests that the pVCM04 probably would be a cryptic plasmid from fusion of different ancestral plasmid.
