Abstract

Gene products involved in the naturally occurring process of bacterial conjugation are usually encoded on plasmids. A new study shows that in Mycobacterium smegmatis, a unique conjugative transfer is mediated by multiple cis-acting sequences present on the chromosome and requires host recombination functions.
