Analysis of the conjugal transfer system of the pheromone-independent highly transferable Enterococcus plasmid pMG1: identification of a tra gene (traA) up-regulated during conjugation.

Abstract

pMG1 (65.1 kbp) is a pheromone-independent Enterococcus faecium conjugative plasmid conferring gentamicin resistance. pMG1 is able to transfer to enterococci at a high frequency in broth mating experiments, and it does not respond to the sex pheromones which are involved in the high-frequency transfer system of some conjugative plasmids in Enterococcus… (More)
