Abstract

SUMMARY: Phage Mu-1 and a thermoinducible derivative, Mu-1 62 were inserted into the broad host range R factor RP4. These hybrid plasmids were transferred by conjugation to a phytopathogenic bacterium GM11000 and a legume-root nodule bacterium 2011. The Mu genome is transcribed and translated in these new hosts: (RP4::Mu ) cultures have a spontaneous production of about 5 x 10 plaque-forming units ml which is similar to the frequency of spontaneous Mu production in ; the Mu production of is lower (about 10 plaque-forming units ml).
