Chromosome-mobilization and integration of F-factors in the chromosome of RecA strains of E. coli under the influence of bacteriophage Mu-1

Abstract

Transfer of chromosome promoted by an F+ or an F′ needs a recombinational event between episome and chromosome and is therefore very low in RecA strains (Wilkins, 1969). When F+ or F′ RecA cells are mated with F- cells and simultaneously infected with bacteriophage Mu-1 the transfer of chromosome is greatly stimulated and seems to take place on any site of… (More)
