The products of the mutD and mutL genes of Escherichia coli are involved in proofreading by DNA polymerase III and DNA adenine MTase (Dam)-dependent mismatch repair, respectively. We have used the plasmid-borne bacteriophage P22 mnt gene as a target to determine the types of mutations produced in mutL25 and mutD5 strains. Of 60 mutations identified from(More)
Some 200 different 5S rRNA sequences from eubacteria, chloroplasts, mitochondria, archaebacteria, and eukaryotes were analyzed for evolutionary kinship relationships and associated sequential features. Group-specific occupation schemes for the 149 positions of an overall alignment were established. Eubacterial, archaebacterial, and intermediate occupation(More)

UV irradiation of the aerial spores of Streptomyces coelicolor pro arg hom cys strain A677 causes the induction of Arg+ and Cys+ revertants. Both phenotypic classes of revertants are induced according to approximately dose-squared kinetics. Some 30% of the induced Cys+ revertants were shown by direct genetic tests to be due to suppressor mutations. Indirect(More)
