|Further information:||Plasmid pAD1 is a pheromone-responsive, conjugative plasmid from Streptococcus faecalis subsp. zymogenes strain DS16.
It contains the hemolysin-bacteriocin determinant (cytolysin) and provides resistance to UV.
It doesn't carry a selectable marker.
pAD1 is a very large plasmid, i.e. 59,6 kb; consequently, the DNA is very fragile and easily damaged.
Being a conjugative plasmid, it is most probably a low-copy number plasmid.
Referring to Ehrenfeld et al (1987), it should be possible to isolate pAD1 DNA according to a lysozyme-alkaline based method. In this context, a large-volume DNA prep might help to isolate low-copy number plasmids. Better results might be obtained by equilibrium ultracentrifugation of Triton lysates or Sarkosyl lysates in a cesium chloride-ethidium bromide gradient (as mentioned in Clewell et al. (1982)), but please take into account that this technique is very costly as well as cumbersome and requires some hands on experience. Commercial kits for the isolation of large plasmids might also be useful.
