Recombinant plasmids carrying ruvA, ruvB, or both were constructed and used to investigate the genetic defects in a collection of UV-sensitive ruv mutants. The results revealed that efficient survival of UV-irradiated cells depends on both ruvA and ruvB, and on a third gene, ruvC, located upstream of the ruvAB operon. Southern blotting analysis was used to locate insertions in ruv and to examine putative deletion mutants. Two Tn10 insertions were located to the region encoding ruvA. Since these… CONTINUE READING
