The bacteriophage resistance plasmid pAH90 (26,490 bp) is a natural cointegrate plasmid formed via homologous recombination between the type I restriction-modification specificity determinants (hsdS) of two smaller lactococcal plasmids, pAH33 (6,159 bp) and pAH82 (20,331 bp), giving rise to a bacteriophage-insensitive mutant following phage challenge (D.(More)
The genetic determinant for abortive infection of bacteriophage (Abi) from the lactococcal plasmid pCI829 was cloned on a 6.2 kb StuI fragment in Escherichia coli using the shuttle vector pSA3. In Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis MG1363Sm the resulting recombinant plasmid pCI816 conferred complete insensitivity to the small isometric-headed phage 712 and a(More)
The nucleotide sequence of the Leuconostoc lactis 533 cryptic plasmid pCI411 (2926 bp) was determined. Analysis revealed the presence of three open reading frames (ORFs). ORF 1 was capable of encoding a 24.9 kDa peptide which shared homology with the replication initiation protein (RepB) from a number of Gram-positive rolling circle plasmids. ORF 2 could(More)
