Isolation of suppressor sensitive mutants in the Ai gene of phage λ

Gianni Cesareni, Sergio Nasi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Previous experiments have shown that mutations in the Ai gene can suppress the growth defect of λ N- phages. Many temperature resistant derivatives of phage λtsN9 have been isolated and among these 5 have been found which are Ai- and have an amber suppressible behaviour. These mutants can help in defining the role of the Ai gene in phage λ development.
