Expression of F transfer functions depends on the Escherichia coli integration host factor.

Abstract

We present evidence that the Escherichia coli DNA binding protein, IHF, plays an important role in conjugal transfer of the plasmid F. Our results suggest that IHF exerts this effect by positively effecting transcription of the transfer (tra) operon of the plasmid.
