Although horizontal gene transfer mediated by plasmids is important to the generation of the genetic variability of Sinorhizobium strains, the barriers which can reduce horizontal gene transfer between bacteria have not yet been studied in Sinorhizobium. We studied the plasmid transfer by electroporation and its restriction in strains of Sinorhizobium meliloti and S. medicae. After conditions for electroporation were established, three S. meliloti strains (including the sequenced type strain… CONTINUE READING
