The plasmid pXO2 determining the capsule synthesis has been shown to be transfered into the cells of different strains of Bacillus anthracis (STI-1, Sterne, KM33, KM35) by the transducing bacteriophage CP54ant and by mobilization by pAM beta 1 replicon with the frequencies, consequently, n.10(-8) and n.10(-7). The optimal parameters for the selection of clones having acquired the pXO2 plasmid have been defined. Mobilization for conjugational transfer has been demonstrated for the plasmid pXO1… CONTINUE READING
