Two hydroxylamine-induced mutants of bacteriophage T4 defective in modification of host valyl-tRNA synthetase have been isolated by assay of crude extracts for the activity that is characteristic of the wild-type virus. The mutations define a single gene that is situated between the rI and e genes on the T4 genetic map. This new gene is designated vs for valyl-tRNA synthetase. One of the mutations may be of the missense type since it results in the production of a valyl-tRNA synthetase activity… CONTINUE READING
