Four clinical isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae sensitive to all the antibiotics and klebocins of six Ayliffe producer strains were conjugated with a strain of Esherichia coli possessing R plasmid. Klebocin typing of resistant transconjugants (K.pneumonise) was repeated. Acquisition of R plasmid complete or in part modified the recipient strains so that they became resistant to one to three klebocins and the elimination (curing) of R plasmid reversed the klebocin sensitivity.
