Abstract

Summary: We have tested the ability of pairs of colicin E plasmids to replicate stably in the same cell line. Although many of the pairs of E colicin plasmids were compatible, plasmids ColE3-CA38, ColE7-K317 and ColE8-J were mutually incompatible, as were ColE5-099, ColE6-CT14 and ColE9-J. Incompatibility between ColE6-CT14 and ColE5-099 or ColE9-J was asymmetrical, whereas incompatibility between the other plasmid pairs was symmetrical.
