Competition between isogenic mutS and mut+ populations of Escherichia coli K12 in continuously growing cultures.

Abstract

Previous studies have shown that the mutT, mutH and mutL mutators of Escherichia coli have a marked advantage in competition growth with otherwise coisogenic wild-type strains. As shown in this paper the same is true for the mutS mismatch mutator. In three experiments mutS could outgrow the wild-type and had higher fitness values.
