Transfer of genetic material between pathogenic and food-borne yeasts
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Applied and Environmental Microbiology
Förlag: American Society for Microbiology
Many pathogenic yeast species are asexual and therefore not involved in intra- or interspecies mating. However, high-frequency transfer of plasmid DNA was observed when pathogenic and food-borne yeasts were grown together. This property could play a crucial role in the spread of virulence and drug resistance factors among yeasts.
