The transport of DNA between several organisms is referred to as lateral gene transfer (LGT), LGTs between bacteria and larger multicellular creatures are interesting. The Consequences of integration between bacterial DNA and eukaryotic DNA may be mutagenic and associated with non-inherited genetic diseases like cancer from Acinetobacter spp. in samples of leukemia and from Pseudomonas spp in stomach cancer samples.
Keywords: LGT, Endosymbionts, Non inherited genetic diseases, DNA transfer
