Abstract

Summary: When carrying a thermosensitive mutation in DNA ligase was grown at the restrictive temperature, several functions associated with the SOS system were induced. These included λ prophage induction, W-reactivation and W-mutagenesis of ultraviolet-irradiated λ phage, and protein synthesis, all of which were dependent and chloramphenicol sensitive, and -dependent filamentation. These results indicate that ligase-deficient growth leads to the induction of the SOS system, and that all the above functions may respond to common induction signals.
