This is prophylactic treatment, and penicillin is the one recommended by the AAP and CDC
Why It's unreadable..
just wondering why is plasmid transfer not a good option???
Transduction requires the presence of a bacteriophage virus. Plasmid transfer requires two different live bacteria, point mutations will not occur across colonies so uniformly and neither will strand mispairing.
@topgunber I think DNase wouldn't stop the process in case of plasmids
you're right in that DNAse wouldn't be able plasmids in living cells because they are inside the bacteria (same with their nuclear dna). Since living cells use sex pilli to transfer plasmids yes, DNAse wouldn't stop plasmid transfer. Key there is they had to be living. I do think a dnase can break down a plasmid in extracellular solution though (its just another piece of dna).
Ask me why I thought this was Friedreich Ataxia and not CMT fml lol
Why did you think that it's FA?
