Genetic studies of erythromycin resistant mutants of Escherichia coli
- 40 Downloads
Several classes of erythromycin resistant mutants were isolated from K12 strains. Most of them were characterized as ribosomal mutants. The corresponding mutations, are co-transducible with the strA marker and have pleiotropic effects. In particular, many of these mutants are temperature sensitive.
