  author={Zapryana Denkova and I. D. Murgov},
ABSTRACTAn interspecies genetic recombination by fusion of protoplasts of antibiotic-resistant clones of lactobacilli: Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus, Lactobacillus helveticus, Lactobacillus casei, and Lactobacillus plantarum has been accomplished. It has been shown that the conditions of degradation of the lactobacilli cell wall allow a high relative share of formed protoplasts to be achieved. After the protoplast fusion and regeneration of the cell wall a heterogenic population… CONTINUE READING
