Abstract

Summary: The effect of various DNA-damaging agents on a species was investigated. The organism was readily mutable by -methyl--nitro--nitrosoguanidine and mitomycin C but not by UV light. No Weigle reactivation of UV-irradiated α3a phage was detected. These results suggest that an error-prone repair mechanism is lacking in this species.
