Abstract

The cryptic plasmid pCI305 from subsp. UC317 was screened for incompatibility with a range of cloning vectors and was found to be incompatible with the theta-replicating plasmids pAM401 and pIL253. In contrast, lactococcal vectors containing the replication functions of the rolling circle replicating plasmids pSH71 and pWV01 were compatible with pCI305. A number of native lactococcal plasmids were also screened for both incompatibility and DNA sequence homology to the pCI305 replicon. A plasmid with high sequence identity was identified which was compatible with pCI305.
