Abstract

SUMMARY: Four mutants of K12 were isolated on the basis of their sensitivity to pH 5.4. Under non-permissive conditions their growth was reversibly inhibited. At pH 7.0 these mutants showed a highly pleiotropic phenotype, which included altered phage and detergent sensitivities and leakage of periplasmic proteins. The findings suggest a defect in the outer membrane, perhaps in lipopolysaccharide. Two mutants mapped in or near the locus, while the other two were remote from this region.
