Ultraviolet light-induced mutation in UV-resistant, thermosensitive derivatives of lexA − strains of Escherichia coli K-12

Abstract

It was shown previously that a major class of UV-resistant derivatives of lexA − strains of E. coli K-12 is defective in cell division at 42.5°. The thermosensitive mutations, judging by genetic mapping and complementation tests, are believed to be intragenic suppressor mutations that lower the activity of the diffusible product that results in the LexA… (More)
