I'm trying to express recombinant genes in a new bacteria belonging to
Sphingomonas species, but the efficiency of transformation is extremely
low. I presently use the electroporation method for introducing
recombinant DNA in Sphingomonas. The electro-competent cells are
prepared following a std. protocol for E. coli, and electroporate using
the E. coli pulser from Bio-rad (1,6kV; 0,1cm cuvette).
Any suggestions about the transformation of Sphingomonas species or
other related bacteria are wellcome.
