The experiments reported here involve temperature-sensitive mutations in two of five cistrons encoding 50S ribosomal proteins that lie near the rif locus in Escherichia coli. I selected spontaneous TS+ mutants able to grow at elevated temperatures in which the TS+ event takes place outside this tract of cistrons near rif. Six distinct classes of extragenic… CONTINUE READING
