The indigenous plasmid pIJ101 is the parent of many cloning vectors used in Streptomyces. One early pIJ101 derivative, pIJ702, has been particularly widely used. pIJ702 lacks sti:cop/korB and accumulates single-stranded DNA (ssDNA). The 1.2 kb BclI-BclI sti:cop/korB and 0.7 kb SpeI-BclI sti regions were isolated from pIJ101 and cloned into pIJ702 at the(More)
Inhibition of cytosine methylation by growth in 5-azacytidine (5-azaC), did not affect the sensitivities to DNA damage induced by exposure to ultraviolet light (UV) of Escherichia coli K-12 strains AB1157 dcm+, which is fully DNA repair-proficient, LR68 (a dcm derivative of AB1157), JC3890 dcm+ uvrB, deficient in error-free excision repair, TK702 dcm+ umuC,(More)
A new form of restriction alleviation is demonstrated for phage induced by ultraviolet light from dcm strains of Escherichia coli K-12. EcoRII restriction of the induced phage is alleviated, which is the first report of Type II restriction alleviation. Unlike previously reported restriction alleviation, the increase in phage-plating efficiency is not(More)
The efficiency of plating on EcoRII-restricting cells of bacteriophage lambda vir propagated on an Escherichia coli K-12 dcm+ host decreased with increase in concentration of 5-azacytidine (5-azaC) in the propagating medium. This illustrates, in-vivo, the inhibition of DNA-cytosine methylation induced by 5-azaC and provides a simple system for the detection(More)
