Conjugational Transfer Kinetics of pLS20 between Bacillus subtilis in Liquid Medium
pLS20-mediated conjugational transfer between <I>Bacillus subtilis</I> was investigated not on conventional solid media but in liquid culture. Detailed conjugational kinetics revealed that pLS20 transmission occurred at a limited cellular growth stage of both donor and recipient. Mutation of the recipient <I>recA</I> did not significantly interfere with the conjugational transfer process.
