Table 2 Transformation frequencies using Himar1 constructs.

From: Transposon mutagenesis in Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae using a novel mariner-based system for generating random mutations

Plasmid     Mean transformation frequency (transformants/CFU) [SE]
Experiment 1 Experiment 2
pMHWT-2 0 NT
pMHWT-1 2.5 × 10-6 [1.3 × 10-6] 9.0 × 10-8 [2.4 × 10-8]
pMHC9-1 9.3 × 10-6 [4.5 × 10-6] 3.0 × 10-7 [4.6 × 10-8]
  1. Mean transformation frequencies (with standard errors) are shown for three separate transformations of M. hyopneumoniae strain 232 using plasmid constructs pMHWT-1, pMHWT-2 and pMHC9-1 in two separate experiments. In experiment 1, 106 CFU were transformed with each plasmid while in experiment 2, 108 CFU were transformed.
