Abstract

W-reactivation (WR) and W-mutagenesis (WM) were observed after irradiation of phage chi X 174 with He and N ions (4.6 MeV/amu). The relative amount of phage RFI DNA (RARFI) extracted from the infected cells was determined by agarose gel electrophoresis. It was found that RARFI was increased by prior UV-irradiation of host cells and this increase corresponded to the efficiency of WR.
