Abstract

A procedure for the rapid isolation of plasmid DNA larger than 30 megadaltons from lactic streptococci is described. This protocol can be used on a preparative scale to isolate sufficient quantities of plasmid DNA required for restriction analysis, cloning, or transformation experiments. A scaled-down protocol is very useful for rapidly screening the plasmid content of streptococcal strains. With this methodology, previously undetected large plasmids were observed.
