Title: Recombination of bacteriophage phiX174 by the red function of bacteriophage lambda. [Uv radiation]

Abstract

Recombination of bacteriophage phiX174 was effectively promoted when the Red function of lambda was supplied by either co-infection with lambda or induction of lambda lysogens. Mutations in red..cap alpha.. and red..beta.. genes of lambda abolished recombination nearly completely, whereas a mutation in gam gene reduced it only slightly. The Red-promoted recombination of phiX174 occurred in recA, recB, and polA mutants as well as in wild-type strains of Escherichia coli. It was further stimulated when phiX174 mutants were irradiated with uv light before infection.
