Bacterial Conjugation in Rhodobacter capsulatus
Authors:  Molly M. Leung and John Thomas Beatty, date: 07/05/2013, view: 5884, Q&A: 0
Bacterial conjugation of plasmids is the common method of introducing foreign DNA into Rhodobacter capsulatus because transformational systems have not been shown as efficient methods of introducing DNA to R. capsulatus. For R. ...
Rhodobacter capsulatus Gene Transfer Agent Transduction Assay
Authors:  Molly M. Leung and John Thomas Beatty, date: 02/20/2013, view: 5012, Q&A: 0
The gene transfer agent (GTA) is a bacteriophage-like particle that transfers genomic DNA from a donor to a recipient bacterium. The Rhodobacter capsulatus GTA (RcGTA) was the first to be studied and this protocol has been optimized for ...
