Abstract

Summary

Transfer of antibiotic resistance between Bacteroides organisms and in mixed culture under optimal anaerobic conditions was attempted. Donor strains used were with R factors of a number of compatibility groups and Bacteroides with unusually high antibiotic resistance. Recipient strains included strains with characteristics favouring conjugal transfer. Although control experiments verified that conjugal transfer of derepressed R factors could occur at a high frequency between in an anaerobic environment, transfer of antibiotic resistance between and was never demonstrated.
