dif (deletion induced filamentation) is a newly identified locus that lies within the terminus region of the Escherichia coli chromosome. The Dif phenotype was characterized by a subpopulation of filamentous cells with abnormal nucleoids and induction of the SOS repair system. Interactions between dif-carrying plasmids as well as between such plasmids and the bacterial chromosome demonstrated that dif is a cis-acting, recA-independent recombination site. Filamentation continued in dif mutants… CONTINUE READING
