Survey results and genotypic characterization of Escherichia coli strains demonstrate that the baeteriocins colicin Ia and microcin V coassociate in a strain more often than would be expected by chance. When these two baeteriocins co-occur, they are encoded on the same conjugative plasmid. Plasmids encoding colicin Ia and microcin V are nonrandomly distributed with respect to the genomic background of the host strain. Characterization of microcin V and colicin Ia nucleotide variation, together...[Show more]
