Abstract

Although bacteriophage Mu cannot infect , lysogens were constructed by conjugal transfer of an RK2::Mu 62 hybrid plasmid, pRK210, into this species from The pRK210 transconjugants were stable and produced infectious Mu virions. The Mu 62 prophage was thermally induced at 42 °C and zygotically induced following transfer of the plasmid to recipients. Induction was accompanied by an increased frequency of Gal and Thy mutants among the survivors. Mu promises to be an important tool for studying the genetics of pathogenicity in
