As described previously, in Rhodococcus sp. (formerly Nocardia opaca) strains MR11 and MR22, the ability to grow as an aerobic hydrogen bacterium (the Aut character) is located on giant conjugative linear plasmids--on pHG201 (270 kb) in strain MR11 and on pHG205 (280 kb) in strain MR22. In an autotrophic transconjugant originating from MR22 a smaller plasmid, pHG207 (225 kb), was detected and shown to be a recombination product of the wild-type plasmids pHG204 and pHG205. A donor carrying… CONTINUE READING
