Hello Netlanders,
	I am posting this for a friend who doesn't have net access.  Please 
reply either directly to him (address under) or I can relay any info Emailed 
to me.
	Dr. Steven Djordjevic is working at the New South Wales dept of 
Agricultre Research Institute, and has some questions regarding the gram
positive bacteria Bacillus larvae (which infects bee hives).  
1)  Does anybody know how well gram positive bacterial transcriptional/
translational signals are interpreted in a gram negative bacground like E.coli?
2) Are there any useful systems for propogating gram pos. plasmids in a model 
organism? 
3) Does anybody know how gram positive strains might be (heat) cured of 
plasmids they are carrying? In this case, a plasmid of about 9 kb.
4) Are there any useful systems for transposon mutagenesis of gram pos.
organisms?

	Thanking you in advance for any replies.
