M double-stranded RNA (MdsRNA) plasmid mutants were obtained by mutagenesis and screening of a diploid killer culture partially heat cured of the plasmid, so that a high proportion of the cells could be expected to have only on M plasmid. Mutants with neutral (nonkiller [K-], immune [R+]) or suicide (killer [K+], sensitive [R-] phenotypes were examined. All mutants became K- R- sensitives on heat curing of the MdsRNA plasmid, and showed cytoplasmic inheritance by random spore analysis. In some… CONTINUE READING
