  • Broad-host-range plasmids, belonging to IncP (RP4 and pUPI102) and IncC (R57.b), were studied for intrageneric and intergeneric gene transfer in three different soil microcosms. RP4 was transferred intragenerically in clay loam, sandy loam, and sandy microcosms at frequencies of 0.71×10−2, 0.83×10−2, and 0.41×10−2 respectively, optimally at 37°C and at 100% vol/wt moisture content. Under similar conditions, R57.b was also transferred at frequencies of 0.38×10−2, 0.58×10−2, and 0.80×10−5… CONTINUE READING
