But do you still see the ccc and oc bands that would even more strongly
indicate a plasmid? Does real xsomal from the archaea run at the same
place on the gel?
Knowing how little cell paste one gets from some hyperthermophilic
archaea, I take it you have insufficient of your material to run a CsCl
What about xsomal specific primers? A PCR, albeit crude, may give you an
indication of xsomal contamination.
The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
