Escherichia coli pel - mutants inhibit the penetration of bacteriophage lambda DNA into the cell. Using P1 mediated cotransduction, we mapped pel - mutations between markers fadD and eda in the interval of minute 40 of the revised E. coli K-12 map. This places pel in the same region as genes kdgR and ptsM. Mutations in kdgR usually do not alter the Pel phenotype, and vice versa. In contrast, about 30% of ptsM - mutants are also pel -, and all pel - mutants isolated are ptsM -. These results… CONTINUE READING
