Table 2 First round conjugations for YU39 donor strain

From: Conjugative transfer of an IncA/C plasmid-borne blaCMY-2gene through genetic re-arrangements with an IncX1 plasmid

Recipient strain Transfer frequencya No. transconjugantsb No. pA/C positivec No. pX1 positived No. ColE1e(% of total)
Typhimurium SO1 (pSTV::Km) 10-8 to 10-10 34 34 1 27 (79)
Typhimurium LT2 (pSTV::Km) 10-8 to 10-10 21 2 19 1 (0.4)

E. coli HB101 (pSTV::Km) 10-8 28 8 24 4 (14)
  1. aThe frequency was calculated as number of transconjugants per donor; the range in the orders of magnitude obtained is shown.
  2. bNumber of transconjugants analyzed.
  3. cNumber of transconjugants positive for the repA/C PCR marker.
  4. dNumber of transconjugants positive for the oriX1 PCR marker.
  5. eNumber of transconjugants carrying pColE1-like.
