How to kill mice with pneumonia… Streptococcus pneumoniae Infection with S. pneumoniae can be fatal to mice Strains vary in their virulence S strains: so called for smooth appearance are highly virulent R strains: rough appearance…no virulence R strain If S cells were killed injection didn’t affect mice. If killed S cells were mixed with R cells…mice died! And live cells with S morphology were recovered…?

“Transforming” R cells into S cells Figure 7-2 Cell debris from boiled S cells contains some transforming factor…but which constituent?

DNA is the transforming agent Systematic analysis revealed that S DNA was the crucial factor We now know that circular plasmids encode virulence factors and are readily transferred between bacterium

Semiconservative DNA replication Single strand serves as a template for synthesis of the complementary strand As complementary bases are added the helical structure is re-established

A replicating bacterial chromosome Figure 7-14 Autoradiographs are produced using isotopes. For direct detection of DNA tritiated ( 3 H) thymine (T) is often used. When T’s are added complementary to A’s in the template the newly synthesized strand is labeled.

Figure 7-14a After one round of replication a single strand is detected by autoradiography. This is the newly synthesized strand.
