The mutD (dnaQ) gene of Escherichia coli codes for the proofreading activity of DNA polymerase III. The very strong mutator phenotype of mutD5 strains seems to indicate that their postreplicational mismatch repair activity is also impaired. We show that the mismatch repair system of mutD5 strains is functional but saturated, presumably by the excess of DNA(More)
