Abstract

Transformation of Penicillium expansum with the pBT6 vector yielded 8 to 34 transformants per μg of DNA. Hybridization analyses revealed that homologous recombination occurred in most of the transformants. Twenty-one out of 25 transformants analysed showed hybridization patterns which were indistinguishable from that of the wild type.
