λ red - gam - makes a small plaque on P2 lysogens (the partial Spi- phenotype). It has been proposed that inactivation of an additional gene δ, mapping in the recombination region, makes the plaque bigger (the full Spi- phenotype) (Zissler et al., 1971b). The present paper demonstrates that the Chi mutation in λ (Stahl et al., 1975) confers upon red - gam… CONTINUE READING
