Abstract

Three DNA-dependent ATPases( phosphohydrolases)can be isolated from cells. We studied these enzymes in a number of mutants deficient in recombination or repair functions()and in competent cells. The mutant studied had lower ATPase II activity, while competent cells had higher ATPase I activity, in comparison with the parental strain not brought to competence.
