Abstract

Factors that are known to influence plasmid transfer in bacterial populations were studied for the conjugative plasmid pWG613, which determined gentamicin resistance in . The transfer frequency was largely unaffected over a wide range of temperature (18–42°C); pH also had little effect on the transfer frequency in the range 5.0–8.5. High cell density and log phase cultures were required for optimal plasmid transfer, as were donor: recipient ratios of 0.003–3.3.
