Abstract

Specialized transducing phages and 105, carrying the sporulation gene , were constructed by the prophage transformation method. An RI fragment (2·4 MDal) carrying the gene was isolated from the 105 genome and recloned into the RI site of plasmid pUB110. The recombinant plasmids corrected the sporulation defect of a Spo Rec host, but slightly inhibited the sporulation of a Spo Rec host.
