Temperature-resistant revertants were isolated from Escherichia coli strains carrying a temperature-sensitive dnaA mutation (initiation of chromosome replication) and either a repressed or a derepressed F-like R factor or a ColV2 factor. Many of the revertants had all the properties of Hfr strains, with a variety of directions and origins of transfer. From one such revertant, episomes carrying the R factor and part of the lac region (R'lac) could be isolated by transduction. This system offers… CONTINUE READING
