Abstract

The mutator phenotype of Escherichia coli dam mutants was found to be reversed by introduction of the bacteriophage T4 gene for DNA adenine methyltransferase. This precludes a direct role for the E. coli DNA adenine methyltransferase in mismatch repair, in addition to its role in strand discrimination, as suggested by earlier studies (S. L. Schlagman, S. Hattman, and M. G. Marinus, J. Bacteriol. 165:896-900, 1986).
