    • Abstract


      Using a high-efficiency DNA cloning vector pJ1–8, a DNA repair geneuvr1 has been self-cloned in bacteriumHaemophilus influenzae. Chimeric plasmid pKuvrl, carrying wild type allele ofuvr1 gene and flanking DNA sequences, specifically complements auvr1 gene mutation in the bacterial chromosome. Auvr1} mutation could be transferred from chromosome byin vivo recombination to pKuvr1 and isolated and designated as plasmid pKuvrl. Plasmid pKuvrl carries a 11.3 kb chromosomal DNA insert which was scanned for the presence of any other DNA repair genes by a novel method of directed mutagenesis. Preliminary analysis of the 3 new mutants isolated by this method supports the notion that the insert contains more than one gene concerned with ultraviolet radiation-sensitivity.
