  • Plasmids were detected in a small to moderate percentage of strains in the speciesMicrococcus kristinae (7%)M. agilis (20%),M. luteus (20%),M. varians (23%),M. nishinomiyaensis (41%), andM. roseus (55%). Plasmids were not detected inM. lylae (0/16) orM. sedentarius (0/20). Plasmid molecular sizes ranged from 1 to ca. 90 MDa. Most of the strains carrying plasmids exhibited only one or two types. Plasmid patterns appeared to be slightly more complex inM. nishinomiyaensis, which usually carried 2… CONTINUE READING
