In current studies of noncovalent interactions of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) with genetic units, the impact of such interactions on gene transfer has not been explored. In this study, we examined the association of some widely occurring PAHs (phenanthrene, pyrene, benzo[g,h,i]perylene, and other congeners) with antibiotic resistant plasmids… CONTINUE READING
