Infection of Mu-sensitive bacteria with a recombinant λphage that carries the EcoRI·C fragment from the immunity end of wild type Mu DNA causes filamentous growth. Transmission electron microscopy revealed that the cell-division cycle was inhibited at, or prior to, the initiation of septation. The filamentation does not occur after infection of Mu-immune bacteria or after infection with a phage carrying the same EcoRI·C fragment, but with an IS1 insertion in gene B of Mu, showing that either… CONTINUE READING
