Abstract

A mutant of PAO1 originally isolated on the basis of its sensitivity to methyl methanesulphonate was found to be (i) sensitive to u.v.- and γ-irradiation, (ii) deficient in recombination as assayed by transduction and conjugation and (iii) deficient in an ATP-dependent deoxyribonuclease activity. Its marker () is cotransducible with and which are mapped at approximately 22 min on the chromosome.
