catacholamine16Transposition is when a segment of DNA (in this case, coding for resistance) jumps onto a plasmid within the same bacterial cell. That plasmid might then transfer to another nearby bacterial cell via conjugation. Transposition is happening WITHIN the bacterium. Conjugation is how that resistance gene gets transferred.+52019-05-21T22:06:52Z
lsmarshallAlso, E. coli is the classic example of a bug tat uses conjugation. ^but explanation above is correct^+22019-05-28T23:28:53Z
seagullI think he might have did what I did. I got Transformation mixed up with transposition. FML+22019-06-08T15:31:39Z
lucianaI still can't understand why it can't be transduction. Is it just because of bacterial types?+2020-01-26T15:03:51Z
Yes, I believe so. You have to remember which bacteria have a conjugation pilus - E. coli is the most popular one because of its F sex factor (remember the F+ x F0 thing in FA?)+2020-02-11T03:13:46Z
pseudorosetteI would say because this happened between two bacteria, but in transduction what causes the acquisition of bacterial resistance is coming from a bacteriophage, which is a virus that infects bacteria, but that is never hinted at the question! +22019-06-17T22:51:31Z
medpsychosisQuick Overview of the involved topics and answer choices that are relevant in this question:
Transduction: Involves phage, cleaves DNA and takes a part with it as it is packaged. Generalized is when is happens by accident. Specialized is an excision event.
Transformation: bacteria takes up naked DNA around it and incorporates it therefore becoming "transformed" e.g. (SHiN) S. Pneuma, H. Influenza type B, and Neisseria.
Transposition: Jumping from one location to another within same bacterial organism (e.g. from chromosome to plasmid)
Conjugation: Above mentioned plasmid gets transferred from conjugal bridge from one bacteria to another.+72019-06-25T21:42:42Z
zbirdEasy here...first both are G-ves which likely have a sex pilus and if cultured together as in this case transfer their plasmid. Transduction need phage. Transposition is exchange of genetic material inside the bacteria b/n the dna and the plasmid or vv (FA2019)+2019-07-16T07:00:49Z
