Transduction of Escherichia coli W3110(R702) and J53(RP4) (10(4) to 10(5) CFU/g of soil) by lysates of temperature-sensitive specialized transducing derivatives of bacteriophage P1 (10(4) to 10(5) PFU/g of soil) (P1 Cm cts, containing the resistance gene for chloramphenicol, or P1 Cm cts::Tn501, containing the resistance genes for chloramphenicol and mercury [Hg]) occurred in soil amended with montmorillonite or kaolinite and adjusted to a -33-kPa water tension. In nonsterile soil, survival of… CONTINUE READING
