The study of plasmid-plasmid and plasmid-chromosome interactions in Staphylococcus aureus

Abstract:

Experiments designed to study the movement of genes between the plasmids and the chromosome of Staphylococcus aureus are described.

Two derivatives of the plasmid pI9789::Tn552, that are temperature-sensitive for replication, pSl and pAD, are used as a model system for this investigation. The plasmids carry a gene conferring resistance to cadmium salts and so the number of cadmium-resistant colonies appearing on selective plates at a restrictive temperature is used as a mean...
