Abstract

A chromosomal copy of the transposon Tn551 and a copy coresident on a gentamicin-resistant conjugative plasmid of Staphylococcus aureus resulted in the mobilization of chromosomal genes during filter mating. Gene mobilization was recA dependent and was not restricted to any specific region of the chromosome. Both essential and nonessential genes were transferred.
