Replacement of the recBCD genes of Escherichia coli with the red recombination genes of bacteriophage lambda results in a strain in which adaptive mutation occurs at an elevated frequency. Like RecBCD-dependent adaptive mutation, Red-mediated adaptive mutation is dependent upon recA and ruvABC functions.
