  • A mutation in the Escherichia coli gene for single-strand binding protein results in temperature-sensitive deoxyribonucleic acid replication (R. R. Meyer, J. Glassberg, and A. Kornberg, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 76:1702-1705, 1979). The mutant (ssb-1) is also more sensitive to ultraviolet irradiation and about one-fifth as active in recombination. Single-strand binding protein is thus implicated in repair and recombination as well as in replication. The mutation in ssb is located between… CONTINUE READING
