Dear all,
Enterococcus faecalis JH2-2 and E. faecium 64/3 as quality control and positive control strains for conjugative plasmids study. From where i can buy these strains? ATCC does'nt have these.

Contact the lab that published the results you are trying to emulate. They must either make the strains available to you, or point you toward a source for those.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

You publish you should make your strains available. So that others can check your results. This is clearly stated in the instructions to authors of every journal I have published.
Availability can be direct or just by making a deposit in some large international organism bank (ATCC being one, but others like the Pasteur institute, or the german collection would be equally acceptable).
Now in reality not everybody will comply with that, but in theory, they should.
