SummaryCertain treatments that damage DNA and/or inhibit replication in E. coli have been reported to induce synthesis of a new protein, termed protein X, in recA+lexA+ strains. We have examined some of the treatments that might induce protein X and we have, in particular, tested the hypothesis of Gudas and Pardee (1975) that DNA degradation products play an essential role in the induction process.We confirmed that UV irradiation, nalidixic acid treatment, or thymine starvation result in… CONTINUE READING
