Numerous insertion mutations conferring resistance to antibiotics are available in Bacillus subtilis. However, many of them have been constructed in vitro by inserting genes from the Staphylococcus aureus plasmids, pC194 or pE194, conferring resistance to chloramphenicol (Cm) or erythromycin (Er). Others are insertions of the Enterococcus faecalis Tn917 transposon conferring resistance to Er. This paucity of resistance markers has been limiting the possibilities of constructing and studying… CONTINUE READING
