[Advances in the molecular mechanism of natural bacterial transformation--a review].

Abstract

Naturally transformable bacteria are able to take up DNA to acquire new genetic traits in the environment. To be naturally transformed, bacteria need to establish a physiological state, called natural competence, in which DNA uptake and processing genes are expressed. DNA uptake proteins assemble a complex to pull exogenous DNA into the cytoplasm where it… (More)
