Abstract

A plasmid (SRP1) determines most of the genetic recombination which occurs between marked derivatives of our strain of SRP1 strains occur with a frequency of about 0.3% amongst spores of SRP1 strains. In SRP1 xSRP1 crosses, SRP1 is transferred to more than 50% of the SRP1 parent. SRP1 xSRP1 crosses are about 100 times more fertile than SRP1xSRP1 crosses (10 to 10 compared with 10 to 10). A very low frequency (about 10) of true recombinants occurs in the absence of SRP1.
