The plasmids R144-3 and R144, which belong to the Iα incompatibility group, were found to be incompatible with R621a, which is the exemplar of the Iγ incompatibility group. Extending the studies of Hedges and Datta (1), R621a and its derivative R621a.1 were shown to be compatible with other Iα plasmids. Hence R144 and R144-3 are not typical Iα plasmids.
