Suppression of an Escherichia coli dnaA mutation by the integrated R factor R100.1: generation of small plasmids after integration.

Publication Date
  • Research Article


We have observed that integration of the R plasmid R100.1 into the chromosome of Escherichia coli is associated with the formation of small, covalently closed circular elements. Contour length measurements, partial denaturation mapping, and analysis of the deoxyribonucleic acid fragments produced by digestion of one of these, pLC1, with the restriction endonuclease EcoRI indicate that it is the r-determinant element of R100.1.
