Abstract

SUMMARY: Conjugative pili were identified for representative plasmids of incompatibility groups P-2, P-3, P-5, P-7, P-8, P-10, P-11, and P-13, pili for groups P-1 and P-9 having already been described in detail. FP5 pili (unclassified) were also found. In most cases pili could be characterized by electron microscopy as rigid or flexible. The majority of plasmids transferred significantly better on a surface than in a liquid. Examples of all incompatibility groups were tested.
