Transduction of antibiotic resistance determinants of the plasmid pBR322 with pseudoT-even bacteriophages RB42, RB43, and RB49 was studied. It is established that antibiotic resistance determinants of plasmid pBR322 fromEscherichia coli recA + and recA – donor strains do not differ significantly in respect to the efficiency of transduction. Amber mutants RB43-21, RB43-33, and a double amber mutant RB43am21am33 were obtained. These mutants facilitated transduction experiments in some cases. Transduction of antibiotic resistance markers of the vector plasmid pBR325 and recombinant plasmid pVT123, containing a DNA fragment with hoc–segE–uvsW genes of phage T4, was studied. The frequency of appearance of transductants resistant to pseudoT-even bacteriophages used in transduction was determined, and the sensitivity of resistant transductants to 32 RB bacteriophages and also to phages λ, T2, T4, T5, T6, T7, and BF23 was estimated. The efficiency of plating pseudoT-even bacteriophages RB42 and RB43 on strain E. coli 802 himA hip carrying mutations in genes that encode subunits of the Integration Host Factor (IHF) was shown to be higher than on isogenic strain E. coli 802. The growth of pseudoT-even bacteriophages limitedin vivo by modification–restriction systems of chromosomal (EcoKI, EcoBI), phage (EcoP1I), and plasmid (EcoRI, EcoR124I, and EcoR124II) localization was analyzed. It was shown that these phages were only slightly restricted by the type I modification–restriction systemsEcoBI, EcoR124I, and EcoR124II. Phage RB42 was restricted by systems EcoKI, EcoP1I, and EcoRI; phage RB43, by systems EcoKI and EcoRI; and phage RB49, by the EcoRI modification–restriction system.
