was lysogenized with phages Mucts62 and D108-1, a mini derivative of D108cts10 carrying a Cm marker. The 20D3(Mucts62)(D 108-1) lysogen was induced and used as donor in a mating with a phage-resistant ; the Cm marker was transferred to this recipient strain at low frequency. The analysis of the Cm transconjugants indicated that they had acquired the pULG3 plasmid of associated with a D108-1 prophage. Subsequent transfer of these pULG3 derivatives within indicated that pULG3 was conjugative. Incompatibility experiments showed that pULG3 is a member of the IncM group.
