Abstract

The ultraviolet sensitivity gene of Escherichia coli B was introduced into a K-12 recipient by transduction with phage P1. The uvs gene of E. coli B is cotransducible with the proC locus of K-12, is closely linked to tsx, is not linked to lacZ, and only rarely to purE. The transductants are mucoid, filamentous on irradiation, and show plating-medium response. The order of markers is lacZ proC tsx uvs purE.
