1984 Infection and Immunity  
Eight colicin V plasmids were conjugated into a plasmidless Escherichia coli (K-12) strain that was susceptible to the bactericidal effects of normal rabbit serum. The resulting colicin V-positive strains were The host strain, E. coli 291 (K-12), contained no detectable plasmids (3). Colicinogeny, antibiotic resistance, and sensi-947 on May 9, 2020 by guest
