Expression of the lacZ gene in Escherichia coli is inactivated by exposure to ultraviolet light (UV). Inactivation is exceptionally effective when cells contain amplified levels of DNA photolyase (which forms complexes with pyrimidine dimers in the absence of light for actual photoreversal) and a λ prophage. Without amplified photolyase, the λ prophage or both, inactivation rates are similar and much lower. UV-inactivation of lacZ gene expression in the presence of both amplified photolyase and… CONTINUE READING
