Title Conjugational transfer kinetics of pLS20 between Bacillus subtilis in liquid medium.
Journal Biosci Biotechnol Biochem
Abstract pLS20-mediated conjugational transfer between Bacillus subtilis was investigated not on conventional solid media but in liquid culture. Detailed conjugational kinetics revealed that pLS20 transmission occurred at a limited cellular growth stage of both donor and recipient. Mutation of the recipient recA did not significantly interfere with the conjugational transfer process.
