Role ofEscherichia coli host cells in genetic control of plasmid transfer


The genomes of different plasmids contain the genetic fin-systems OP, Q, U, V, W, and C, which control the synthesis of inhibitors of transfer of F and other F-like plasmids [5, 8]. The use of derepressed plasmids with known typeof sensitivity toward transfer inhibit0rs , suppressing the action of tra-genes, has led to the identification of the genetic fin… (More)
