Repair and recombination of nonreplicating UV-irradiated phage DNA in E. coli III


The question of whether induction of the SOS response in Escherichia coli increases the efficiency of excision repair was addressed by measuring repair of UV-damaged nonreplicating lambda phage DNA in previously irradiated bacteria. Prior UV irradiation of lex + bacteria enhanced both the rate of regeneration of infective phage DNA (about 10-fold) and the… (More)
