Info needed on Alcaligenes eutrophus

	I need some info on A. eutrophus regarding its genetics.  I'm thinking 
of trying to complement some A. eutrophus mutants with clones I have, however, 
I know nothing about this bug. All of my clones are in pUC18/19 and pBR322 
derivitives.  (1) Will A. eutrophus maintain E. coli pUC based vectors?  (2) 
How do you transform this bug (electroporation, CaCl2, mating)?
	If the answer to question (1) is no, can you recommend a low to 
mid-copy numbered shuttle vector I could use?

Thanks, Jim
