Restriction and modification in Bacillus subtilis 168


Gene hsrM (nonB) of Bacillus subtilis 168, causing non-permissiveness to phage SP10 (Saito et al. 1979) and reduced plating efficiency of unmodified phage ϕ105, is responsible for non-permissiveness of B. subtilis 168 for phages π15 and PZA. Upon transformation to sporulation deficiency (allele spoOA) B. subtilis 168 becomes permissive for ϕ15 and PZA and… (More)
