The broad-host range of conjugal transfer and the chromosomal location make conjugative transposons (CT) attractive candidates as tools for genetic manipulation of a large variety of bacteria. In this paper we describe insertion vectors capable of integrating into Tn916, the prototype of CT in Gram-positive bacteria. The integration of vectors into a single chromosomal copy of Tn916 was studied both after natural transformation of Bacillus subtilis, and after electroporation in Enterococcus faecalis. Integration occurred either by double or by single crossover, and the integrated DNA segment was shown to be highly stable. All recombinant CT (rCT) were still able to excise from the chromosome to form circular intermediates, the first step of both transposition and conjugal transfer. All classes of rCT generated by insertion vector pSMB47 were capable of conjugal transfer, while using pVMB11 it was possible to generate non-conjugative rCT.
