Abstract

SUMMARY: Bacteriophage C5 of is able to reactivate ultraviolet (u.v.)-irradiated phage E79 in coinfection experiments and decrease the u.v.-sensitivity of a host-cell reactivation deficient mutant. These properties suggest that phage C5 has a gene(s) which is involved in the repair of u.v.-damaged DNA. The isolation of two u.v.-sensitive mutants of C5 supports this hypothesis.
