Plasmid pSinA of Sinorhizobium sp. M14 (Alphaproteobacteria) is the first described, natural, self-transferable plasmid harboring a complete set of genes for oxidation of arsenite. Removal of this plasmid from cells of the host strain caused the loss of resistance to arsenic and heavy metals (Cd, Co, Zn and Hg) and abolished the ability to grow on minimal salt medium supplemented with sodium arsenite as the sole energy source. Plasmid pSinA was introduced into other representatives of… CONTINUE READING
