Abstract

The first demonstration of conjugal plasmid transfer from Escherichia coli to Bartonella henselae is reported. Transconjugants bearing plasmids of incompatibility groups P (IncP) and Q (IncQ), expressing various resistance markers, were generated. Tn5 transposons delivered on suicide plasmids by conjugation showed transpositional insertion into random chromosomal sites.
