[Replication characteristics of plasmids and their dependence of recA gene for the initiation of Escherichia coli chromosome replication in the integrated state].

E. coli dnaA46 fails to grow and form colonies at 40 degrees C; integrated with plasmid enables it to grow at 40 degrees C or 42 degrees C. In a previous paper we reported that the replication of chromosome initiated by the integrated F' plasmid was recA gene dependent. In this paper we report further the behavior of 5 plasmids and 2 phages as to their… (More)
