RecA-Mediated Asymmetric Repair of Lethal DNA Lesions in E. coli
5BU photolysis, wildtype strains. Recovery was essentially complete.
125I decay, wildtype strain. Approximately half of the cells recovered at the end of the first round of DNA replication.
125I decay, recA strain. No significant increase in recovery occurred at the first generation, but recovery increased gradually during the second generation, as expected for production of irreparable damage in labeled regions.
