  • SummaryComplementation and sequencing analyses revealed that the hopD mutants, which could not support stable maintenance of mini-F plasmids (Niki et al. 1988), had mutations in the hupB gene, and that the hopD410 mutation was an ochre mutation at the 5th Gln position of HU-1. Maintenance and stability of various plasmids, mini-P1 plasmids, mini-F plasmids, and oriC plasmids, were studied in the hupA and hupB mutants (HU mutants), and himA and hip mutants (IHF mutants). Mini-P1 plasmids and… CONTINUE READING
