Transfer of plasmid RP1 into chemolithotrophic Thiobacillus neapolitanus.

By C F Kulpa, M T Roskey and M T Travis


RP1, a broad-host-range incompatibility group P1 plasmid specifying multiple drug resistances, has been transferred into the chemolithotrophic bacterium Thiobacillus neapolitanus. The ability of T. neapolitanus to receive, express, and transmit RP1-encoded antibiotic resistances was examined. The data show that this obligate chemolithotroph can accept, replicate, and express heterologous plasmid DNA from a heterotrophic bacterium
