Abstract

RNA phage production was observed in Escherichia coli hfq mutant strains transformed with plasmids containing genomic cDNA of phages Qbeta or MS2. Qbeta production was reduced 5000-fold in an insertional mutant containing an omega cassette in the middle of hfq, but was unaffected in a mutant with the cassette near the end of hfq. The insertions had no effect on MS2 replication.
