Following uptake by competent Bacillus subtilis, transforming DNA is converted to two distinct slowly sedimenting molecular forms which possess little transforming activity (eclipse). A few minutes after uptake is initiated, a physical complex of donor and recipient DNA begins to form. The recovery of donor transforming activity following eclipse, and the appearance of recombinant activity, previously reported by Venema, Pritchard & Venema-Schroder (1965), is shown to be due to changes… CONTINUE READING
