An electroporation-induced transformation system was developed forLeuconostoc oenos. Of the three plasmids tested (pGK13, pAMS100 and pIL253), only pGK13 was expressed. Several parameters were studied with possible influence on transformation efficiency. Electroporation conditions of 2000 V/cm, 25μF and 200 ohm proved successful. Transformation efficiencies (number of cells/μg plasmid DNA) of 1 X 103 were obtained.
