Participation of the intracellular enzymes in the control of mutational processes

The influence of UV-specific endonuclease and medium composition on the frequency and spectrum of genic mutations in Escherichia coli KI2 uvr + (with normal repair enzymes) and urv A6 (defective in UV-specific endonuclease) was studied. Mutations at the locus glu (gene controlling assimilation of glucose) were induced by ultra-violet irradiation and… CONTINUE READING
