The Transfer Origin for Bacteroides Mobilizable Transposon Tn4555 Is Related to a Plasmid Family from Gram-Positive Bacteria
(East Carolina University, 1998-01)
Conjugal transfer of Bacteroides mobilizable transposon Tn4555 was examined with an Escherichia coli-based assay system. It was shown that mobilization required the cis-acting oriTTn region and that the Tn4555 mobATn gene ...
Characterization of a Peroxide-Resistant Mutant of the Anaerobic Bacterium Bacteroides fragilis
(East Carolina University, 1998-11)
A Bacteroides fragilis mutant resistant to hydrogen peroxide and alkyl peroxide was isolated by enrichment in increasing concentrations of hydrogen peroxide. The mutant strain was constitutively resistant to 100 mM H2O2 ...
