DNA can be transferred from eubacteria to at least plants, fungi, and all other eubacteria by related, plasmid-mediated conjugation. Little is known about the biochemistry of intraspecies or interspecies DNA transfer. Even less is known about what other molecules may accompany the DNA, or the direct or inheritable effects on recipients of these escort molecules. This report describes a genetic assay for detecting protein transfer during conjugation. The assay monitored phage lambda released… CONTINUE READING
