Abstract

Streptomyces azureus ATCC 14921 harboured a plasmid pSA1 together with its chromosomal integrated sequence (pSA1int). The att P site on the plasmid was located at ca 170 bp BamHI‐SphI fragment by site‐specific integration. The free form was generated from the integrated sequence during the development of its host mycelia in the solid culture, but not in the liquid culture. The free form seemed to elicit the formation of spontaneously developing pocks on its host mycelia in the solid culture.
