The growth properties of a new panel of Bacillus subtilis tetL deletion strains and of a derivative set of strains in which tetL is restored to the chromosome support earlier indications that deletion of tetL results in a range of phenotypes that are unrelated to tetracycline resistance. These phenotypes were not reversed by restoration of a tetL gene to its native locus and were hypothesized to result from secondary mutations that arise when multifunctional tetL is deleted. Such genetic… CONTINUE READING
