Method Plasmids were introduced into B. cereus ATCC14579 strain using the previously described electroporation protocol (Turgeon et al., 2006). All Bacillus strains were grown at 30 °C, 225 rpm in trypticase soy broth (TSB) (Difco Laboratories, Detroit, MI) or on trypticase soy agar (TSA) (Difco Laboratories).
Comments The plasmid pT181 utilizes rolling circle replication mechanism of group I according to the Osborn classification (Osborn, 1999 Osborn, M., 1999. Database of plasmid replicons (DPR). [On line]. link)
