A reversion assay system previously implemented to demonstrate the existence of adaptive or stationary-phase-induced mutagenesis in Bacillus subtilis was utilized in this report to study the influence of the mismatch DNA repair (MMR) system on this type of mutagenesis. Results revealed that a strain deficient in MutSL showed a significant propensity to generate increased numbers of stationary-phase-induced revertants. These results suggest that absence or depression of MMR is an important… CONTINUE READING
