Abstract

A mutation in a strain of 15 produced ribosomes by an abnormal pathway that caused the accumulation of 47S ribonucleoprotein particles. The mutation was transferred to strains of K12 by transductions with bacteriophage Plcam and was at about 82 min, between and and rather closer to the latter. The location and the physiological properties of the mutant suggested that the mutation was in the transcription unit and affected the synthesis of ribosomal proteins L28 and L33.
