Physical structures involved in chromosome transfer
The above transfer of chromosome is achieved through the conjugation tubes or F pili (singular pilus) protruding from cell walls of F+ or Hfr cells. These pili are absent in F- cells, and come in contact with these F- cells to provide the passage for transfer. The pili have actually been observed under electron microscope.
