Saha, Sujoy and Singh, R P and Verma, J P and Jayaraman, J (2000) Plasmid-borne determinants of colony morphology, pigmentation, antibiotic resistance and antibiosis in Pseudomonas species antagonistic to bacterial blight of cotton. Current Science, 79 (9). pp. 1384-1385.
Plasmids of bacteria are responsible for definite phe- notypic traits. The plasmid profile of a cotton phyllo- plane bacterium belonging to genus Pseudomonas and antagonistic to the incidence of bacterial blight of cot- ton, Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. malvacearum was studied. The plasmid restriction had restriction sites for BamHI and EcoRI. The cured strain of the bacte- ria lost its original colony characters, pigmentation, antibiotic resistance and antibiosis which were again restored when the cured bacteria was transformed by its plasmid deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). The investi- gation confirmed that the above-mentioned phenotypic traits were plasmid-borne.
