Genetic determination of the donor properties in Escherichia coli K-12


The chromosome mobilization is the ability of F+ donors to introduce part of the chromosome besides F-plasmids into the recipient cells during conjugation. We studied the genetic determination of this phenomenon. Most efficient almost like true Hfr's are F+-cells of the genotype recBC - sbcB - belonging to the RecF-recombination type. Their ability to… (More)
