The recently identified recA gene of the naturally transformable bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae has been further characterized by constructing a recA null mutation and by investigating its regulation. The recA mutation has been shown to confer both DNA repair (as judged from sensitivity to u.v. and methyl methane sulphonate) and recombination deficiencies. Plasmid transformation into the recA mutant was also drastically reduced. Western blotting established that recA gene expression is… CONTINUE READING
