Abstract

The naturally occurring plasmid pAV2 restricts the entry of the P class plasmid RP4 and the W class plasmids R388 and S-a into strain EBF65/65 from The W class plasmids only transfer from into pAV2 strains. Plasmid RP4 is modified in the presence of pAV2 such that it is no longer restricted on entry into pAV2 recipients of strain EBF65/65.
