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 following essay is draft of the published essay and may have some minor variations from the final, copyedited version. Because the term 'ethnography' has widely variant meanings across the disciplines, it should not be surprising that within an interdisciplinary field such as Science and Technology Studies (STS) the practices of fieldwork and the(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)
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)

Acknowledgements We gave versions of this paper at the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interactionism Couch-Stone Symposium held at the University of Nottingham in July 1996. We received helpful feedback from our two discussants, that there was such a phenomenon, and that it might be showcased at that meeting. We are grateful to her for the idea; but she(More)
