RecA protein--promoted lambda repressor cleavage: complementation between RecA441 and RecA430 proteins in vitro.

Abstract

Induction of prophage lambda occurs in recA441 mutant lysogens after a shift to 42 degrees C in the presence of adenine. If the synthesis of RecA441 protein is maintained at a low basal level by the presence of a second mutation in the recA441 gene, recA453, induction of prophage lambda is prevented. The ability to induce prophage lambda is restored by the… (More)
