Genetic exchanges induced by structural damage in nonreplicating phage lambda DNA.

Abstract

Genetic recombination between irradiated lambda phage and the unirradiated lambda prophage in homoimmune lysogens has been studied under conditions in which phage DNA replication and repair were controlled. The lambda phage were exposed to one of three treatments before infecting the lysogens: (a) 254-nm light, which produces pyrimidine dimers and other… (More)
