Role of deoxyribonucleic acid polymerase III in the repair of single-strand breaks produced in Escherichia coli deoxyribonucleic acid by gamma radiation.


Cell survival, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) degradation, and the repair of DNA single-strand breaks were measured for Escherichia coli K-12 pol+, polA1, polC1026(ts), and polA1 polC1026(ts) cells after 137Cs gamma irradiation. The results indicate that DNA polymerase III is required for growth medium-dependent (type III) repair in polA+ or polA cells. In pol… (More)
