Mutants of Escherichia coli K-12 have been isolated that suppress cer mutants, ColE1 mutants that are unable to replicate as the plasmid. These host suppressors were designated her, for host factor affecting ColE1 replication. Each her suppressor showed a characteristic pattern of suppression depending on the cer mutation used for selecting the mutant… CONTINUE READING
