high-frequency transduction

high-fre·quen·cy trans·duc·tion

specialized transduction in which the donor bacterium contains not only the transducing, defective probacteriophage but also nondefective prophage that serves as "helper" virus, enabling most of the defective prophage particles to develop sufficiently to function as transducing agents.
