The staphylococcal plasmid phi 11de is capable of transduction in the absence of both a helper bacteriophage and detectable plaque-forming bacteriophage. The mechanism of transfer is distinct from generalized transduction in that it does not transduce chromosomal material and is selective with respect to the plasmid DNA that is transduced. The transductants(More)
Transduction of plasmid pC194 and bacteriophage phi 11de varied inversely with the multiplicity of infection. As the multiplicity of infection decreased from 10(-1) to 10(-5) PFU/CFU, the transduction frequency of pC194 increased 10(4)-fold; the transduction frequency of phi 11de increased 300-fold with a 100-fold decrease in multiplicity of infection.(More)
