Flagellar mutants in Escherichia coli region I were obtained by selection for resistance to the flagellotropic phage chi. F' elements carrying this region of the E. coli genome were then constructed. Stable merodiploid strains with a flagellar defect on the exogenate and another on the endogenote were prepared. These merodiploids yielded information on the complementation behavior of mutations in this region. Region I was shown to include at least six cistrons, flaV, flaK, flaL, flaM, flaS, and… CONTINUE READING
