Gene transfer between Escherichia coli and Enterobacter aerogenes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Transfer of chromosomal genes between Escherichia coli K12 and Enterobacter aerogenes was carried out by P1-mediated transduction as well as by transformation of genes cloned in vitro on plasmid vectors. The efficient expression of E. coli genes in E. aerogenes probably reflects the existance of a poor restriction system in the latter, and suggests that this strain might be useful as a recipient of genetic information from E. coli.
