Identification of DNA involved in Rhodococcus chromosomal conjugation and self-incompatibility.

Author information

Genetics Department, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa.


Genes essential for Rhodococcus chromosomal conjugation were found to be located on an unstable genetic element in one of the strains investigated. From this element two segments of DNA could be identified which were involved in conjugation of Rhodococcus strains. One region, spread over 8 kb, was involved in the property of self-incompatibility. A second region, of about 3 kb, was essential for conjugation between ATCC 12674 and related nocardioforms.
