[Direct method of selecting LycA mutants of Escherichia coli K-12].

Lambdoid phage form clear plaques and show reduced ability to establish immunity in LycA mutants of Escherichia coli. This study was undertaken to isolate new LycA mutants. For this purpose, a selective method for isolation of LycA mutants was developed. Two groups of LycA mutants have been isolated and analyzed. It was shown that lysogenization with… CONTINUE READING
