In order to have available a procedure for gene transfer in Bordetella pertussis, the transformation system described originally by Branefors (1964) was re-examined and further developed. Under her original conditions, few streptomycin-resistant transformants were obtained in the present investigation when DNA prepared from the 44122/7R streptomycin-resistant strain was incubated with competent 44-122/7 streptomycin-sensitive cells. In attempts to improve the transformation frequency, conditions for DNA isolation, preparation of competent cells and exposure of recipient cells to DNA were examined in detail.
