AbstractConjugative transfer is a primary means of spread of mobile genetic elements (plasmids and transposons) between bacteria. It leads to the dissemination and evolution of the genes (such as those conferring resistance to antibiotics) which are carried by the plasmid. Expression of the...
AbstractThe evolutionary survival of prokaryotes has depended not only on their performance during conditions that allow rapid growth, but also on their ability to adjust their internal affairs to enhance survival during prolonged periods of growth arrest. The small size of prokaryotes limits...
AbstractYeasts are being increasingly identified as important organisms in human infections. Adhesive interactions between yeasts and bacteria may contribute to yeast retention at body sites. Methods for studying adhesive interactions between bacterial strains are well known, and range from...
AbstractMost small plasmids of Gram-positive bacteria use the rolling-circle mechanism of replication and several of these have been studied in considerable detail at the DNA level and for the function of their genes. Although most of the common laboratory Bacillus subtilis 168 strains do not...
