Protoplast fusion: a tool for intergeneric gene transfer in bacteria.

Abstract

Protoplasts can be isolated from bacterial cells by digestion of the cell wall with the help of lysozyme in presence of osmotic stabilizers. Fusion of protoplasts can be induced by chemical fusogens like polyethylene glycol. The electrofusion technique has been reported in bacteria in which the fusion frequency is much higher than that obtained by PEG… (More)
