Mutants of the cI gene of prophage lambda have been defined phenotypically in a recA+ host as noninducible (Ind-), inducible (Ind+), or induction sensitive (Inds). We showed that a phage lambda cI+ carrying operator mutations v2 and v3 displays an Inds phenotype, as does lambda cI inds-1. We characterized a fourth induction phenotype called induction resistant (Indr). Using these four prophage types, we tested the influence of bacterial recA mutations on prophage induction. Indr prophages were… CONTINUE READING
