Does anyone know if recombination frequencies can be increased by
incresing the level of expression of eg. the recA gene in bacteria?
I am working with a bug that has a very low rate of recombination that
makes it difficult to do allele exchange etc.
Would it be possible to place the E.coli recA gene under the control of
a strong promoter, into these cells to increase the level of
What happens if the E. coli recA gene is overexpressed?
