Among mutants of E. coli selected for temperature-sensitive growth, four were found to possess alterations in ribosomal proteins L7/L12. Of these, three apparently lack protein L7, the acetylated form of protein L12. Genetic analyses have revealed that the mutation responsible for this alteration maps at a locus around 34 min of the current E. coli genetic map, which is clearly different from the location for the structural gene for protein L7/L12 which is situated at 89 min. Hence, the gene… CONTINUE READING
