A method for estimating mutagenic specificity in Escherichia coli (argE3, hisG4, thr-1, supE44), based upon the isolation of Arg+ or His+ revertants and identification of tRNA suppressors, is described. The method gives an insight not only into mutagenic pathways but also into the functioning of tRNA. With N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine, 98% of(More)
