These plasmids are called -AL?L—h— The cells are designated as ti 7 _ These integrated plasmids may mobilize (or facilitate the transfer of) the chromosome during Conjugation. They can transfer a large region of chromosome. Example of such a plasmid: if l"'. , 'i LL. It: Hfr cell-now serves as F plasmid donor to F cells (those lacking an F plasmid) and some chromosomal DNA can also be transferred. (If an F+ cell is the donor, then "no chromoSomal DNA can be transferred; only plasmid.) See‘ifigare lighter how an Hfr cell can transfer plasmid and chromosome to an F cell.
