Escherichia coli mutants possessing temperature-sensitive lesions in glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase, the enzyme catalysing the first step in phospholipid biosynthesis, have been characterized genetically. By recombinational and complementation tests, the mutants have been found to map in a single locus, called plsA, which is cotransducibile with the purE locus and lies between the purE and proC loci at minute 13 on the E. coli genetic map.
