Conjugative chromosomal gene transfer in Bacillus subtilis

Conjugative chromosomal gene transfer in Bacillus subtilis Conjugative transfer of 20-kb chromosomal fragment carrying genes encoding tetracycline (tet r ) and lincomycin (lin r ) resistance in the soil strain Bacillus subtilis 19 is described. Transfer was preceded by this fragment insertion into the large conjugative p19cat plasmid producing a hybrid plasmid. Insertion frequency was 10−4−10−5. Then genes tet r and lin r were transferred to the recipient strains. The transfer of chromosomal genes inserted into the plasmid and plasmid gene cat occurred sequentially and resembled sexduction, which represents chromosomal gene transfer by F′ and R′ plasmids during conjugation in Escherichia coli and other gram negative bacteria. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

Conjugative transfer of 20-kb chromosomal fragment carrying genes encoding tetracycline (tet r ) and lincomycin (lin r ) resistance in the soil strain Bacillus subtilis 19 is described. Transfer was preceded by this fragment insertion into the large conjugative p19cat plasmid producing a hybrid plasmid. Insertion frequency was 10−4−10−5. Then genes tet r and lin r were transferred to the recipient strains. The transfer of chromosomal genes inserted into the plasmid and plasmid gene cat occurred sequentially and resembled sexduction, which represents chromosomal gene transfer by F′ and R′ plasmids during conjugation in Escherichia coli and other gram negative bacteria.
