pAL5000 based vectors, conventionally used to transform Mycobacterium species were used in this study to transform Rhodococcus and Gordonia species. Adequatetransformation efficiencies were obtained ranging between 4.5x103 – 2.8x106.Additionally, a pAL5000 based vector with suicide function was generated. This vectorwas transformed into Rhodococcus, Mycobacterium and Gordonia species and was maintained as a stable construct.
Keywords: pAL5000, Rhodococcus, Gordonia, suicide vector.
