Abstract

SUMMARY: The DNA-intercalating agent ethidium bromide was used to eliminate plasmid DNA from streptomycetes. Other mutational events associated with chromosome changes occurred at high frequency; they resulted in phenotypic changes such as loss of enzyme activity, antibiotic resistance or ability to sporulate.
