Genetic Circularity of the Pseudomonas Aeruginosa PAO Chromosome

Genetic Circularity of the Pseudomonas Aeruginosa PAO Chromosome

P L Royle et al. J Bacteriol.


Genetic circularity of the Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO chromosome was demonstrated by a series of two- and three-factor crosses and double-selection experiments with Cma plasmids FP2, FP5, FP110, and R68.45. A range of additional markers, including catabolic markers, were located on the chromosome map. Plasmid FP2, known to have a major origin of chromosome transfer (0 min) was shown to have at least one other minor origin from which it can transfer the chromosome in the direction opposite to that found for the major origin.
