Species-Specific Type II Restriction-Modification System of Xylella fastidiosa Temecula1

Text - scientific article/review article


The transformation efficiency of Xylella fastidiosa can be increased by interfering with restriction by the strain-specific type II system encoded by the PD1607 and PD1608 genes. Here, we report results for two strategies: in vitro methylation using M. SssI and isolation of DNA from an Escherichia coli strain expressing the methylase PD1607.
