SOS repair of 8-methoxypsoralene monoadducts in DNA of lambda bacteriophage and plasmids is mediated by MucA 2 ′ B, but not UmuD 2 ′ C (PolV) polymerase

Abstract

The light-induced action of 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) on λ phage and plasmids yields monoadducts and interstrand crosslinks. The survival and clear plaque mutation frequency in the phage photosensitized with 8-MOP and irradiated with UV at wavelength >320 nm are increased when the wild-type host (Escherichia coli uvr +) is subjected to UV irradiation… (More)
