We did not obtain any transconjugants with pR16.0676_90k, but we did obtain a transconjugant with a composite plasmid, which had the same sequences as pR16.0676_90k and pR16.0676_34k (Appendix Figure, panel C).
Chloramphenicol (40 [micro]g/ml) was used as a selective antibiotic marker for transconjugants of S.
We devised a very simple setup, wherein effect of Acriflavine was studied by analysing difference in number of transconjugants formed between Acriflavine treated and untreated mating mixture.
sullae strain towards the Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain on solid culture medium and to study the characters acquired by the transconjugants. Results The use of the chloramphenicol antibiotic and the calcofluor white as selection agents have made it possible to select transconjugant strains capable to produce the exopolysaccharides.
In order to avoid the selection of spontaneous [Nal.sup.R] donor strains instead of transconjugants during the conjugation experiments, spontaneous rifampicin resistant ([Rif.sup.R]) colonies of the donor strains were selected to have a second antibiotic resistance selection marker.

Transconjugants were selected on MacConkey agar, using imipenem (0.5 [micro]g/mL) and azide (150 [micro]g/mL).
Transconjugants were selected by transferring the 2-3 loopfuls of the suspension onto over-dried Mueller-Hinton agar plates containing nalidixic acid (40 mg/L) with either tetracycline (40 mg/L) as hydrochloride, streptomycin (40 mg/L), trimethoprim (10 mg/L), or chloramphenicol (40 mg/L).
Crude preparations of [beta]-lactamases from clinical strains transconjugants were obtained by sonication in phosphate buffer, pH 7.0, as described previously [15].
