Abstract

There have been many cases in where a phenotype has proved to be unstable. This has usually been taken to suggest plasmid involvement. In the case of streptomycin resistance in two strains, this instability is reversible. Moreover, its cyclic nature suggests that insertion by a transposable element is affecting expression of a gene or genes.
