Abstract

Abstract Caffeine was found to function as a repressor of UV-induced λ prophage when added to the post-irradition culture medium with both uvrB + and uvrB − strains of E. coli K12. Caffeine functioned as a repressor of λ induction at high but not low inducing doses of UV. Caffeine alone at concentrations above 10 mg/plate functioned as an inducer of λ prophage.
