Among 14 temperature-sensitive, growth-defective mutants of mycobacteriophage L1 showing a lysis-defective phenotype at 42 degrees C, six are, in addition, defective in phage DNA synthesis at 42 degrees C. In the present study, we show that one of the latter six mutants, L1G27ts901, is also defective in the synthesis of both an L1-specific exonuclease (a representative delayed early protein), and of RNA in both the delayed early and late periods but not in the immediate early period. The… CONTINUE READING
