Antibiotic resistance genes are usually carried on plasmids. Bacterial conjugation is one of the ways that prokaryotic microorganisms carry out genetic recombination through plasmids. Through bacterial conjugation experiments, bacterial cells can obtain specific resistance. We provide customers with assistance in bacterial conjugation experiments.
Prokaryotic microorganisms can carry out gene recombination through three ways: transformation, transduction and conjugation. Bacterial conjugation refers to the process in which bacteria lead to the transfer of genetic material and gene recombination through cell-to-cell contact. Through bacterial conjugation, part of the genetic material carried by the F plasmid is transferred from the donor to the recipient, allowing the recipient to obtain part of the donor's genetic traits. The antibiotic resistance gene on the plasmid can be transferred from one cell to another through bacterial conjugation.
F plasmid is a double-stranded circular DNA molecule associated with bacterial conjugation that exists in Escherichia coli. It can replicate itself or be transferred to other cells. According to whether E. coli cells have F plasmids, E. coli can be divided into four categories:
