Characteristics of a colicin plasmid in Escherichia coli strain B177 isolated from a septicemic calf.

Abstract

A colicin plasmid in Escherichia coli strain B177 isolated from a septicemic calf was characterized. The colicin type was identified as ColV by using reference ColV producers. The colicin plasmid was labeled with transposon Tn903 and subjected to conjugation. The transconjugants examined suggest that the colicin plasmid confers serum resistance. There was… (More)
