High impact information on traN

  • ColB2 transfer was more strongly affected by mutations in the heptose II-heptose III region of the LPS (rfaF) whereas R100-1 was not strongly affected by any of the rfa mutations tested. ompA but not rfa mutations further decreased the mating efficiency of an F plasmid carrying a mutation in the mating-pair stabilization protein TraN [1].
