The DNA of wild-type Streptomyces lividans 66 is degraded during electrophoresis in buffers containing traces of ferrous iron. S. lividans ZX1, a mutant selected for resistance to DNA degradation, simultaneously became sensitive to phi HAU3, a wide-host-range temperate bacteriophage. A DNA fragment conferring phi HAU3 resistance was cloned; it contains a phage resistance gene whose deduced amino acid sequence is similar to the phage lambda Ea59 endonuclease. The S. lividans phi HAU3 resistance… CONTINUE READING
