Ultraviolet-Light-Induced Incorporation of Bromodeoxyuridine into Parental DNA of an Excision-Defective Mutant of Escherichia coli

  • Ronald D. Ley
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series


Bromodeoxyuridine-containing regions approximately 1.5 X 104 nucleotides in length, and at intervals equivalent to the pyrimidine dimer content of the DNA, have been observed in the parental DNA of an excision-defective strain of Escherichia coli exposed to 10 ergs mm-2 at 254 nm followed by prolonged incubation in the presence of bromodeoxyuridine.
