Abstract

The frequency of recombination for a complete set of two-factor crosses between vaccinia virus mutations separated by distances of between 54 and 10692 bp was determined. The results show that in intragenic crosses there is a linear relationship between the recombination frequency observed and distances between the mutations of up to 700 bp. However, no length dependence of the recombination frequency in intergenic crosses with a distance between mutations of 328 to greater than 10000 bp is observed. We attribute this lack of dependence to the high rate of viral DNA interchange, which makes some step other than the cross-over event rate-limiting. Furthermore, we believe that the observed difference in recombination frequency between inter- and intragenic recombination is due to complementation between temperature-sensitive mutants at the permissive temperature.
