The bacterial host ranges of the conjugatively self-transmissible IncN group plasmid pCU1 and its mobilizable miniderivative, pCU785, were examined. Species of the gram-negative purple bacteria were chosen for this study. Conjugative mobilization of pCU785 into a wide variety of bacteria was facilitated by the presence of oriT of the broad-host-range plasmid RK2 in pCU785. Although the host range of the IncN tra system of pCU1 is broad, the host range of its replicon is limited. However, the… CONTINUE READING
