Abstract

The structural basis for the streptomycin dependence phenotype of ribosomal protein S12 mutants is poorly understood. Here we describe the application of site-directed mutagenesis and gene replacement of Thermus thermophilus rpsL to assess the importance of side chain identity and tertiary interactions as phenotypic determinants of drug-dependent mutants.
