Abstract

Summary: The locus was isolated from a λ clone bank and a 4.7 kbp RV fragment subcloned into the shuttle vector pHV33. The resulting plasmid complemented chromosomal mutations. Its structure was stable in strains, but plasmid and chromosomal rearrangements occurred in strains. New mutations were obtained by mutagenesis of the plasmid; all the mutations tested mapped within three adjacent dIII fragments of total length 1140 bp.
