Adaptive Reversion of an Episomal Frameshift Mutation in Escherichia coli Requires Conjugal Functions but not Actual Conjugation

Adaptive reversion of a lac-frameshift mutation in Escherichia coli appears to be due to DNA polymerase errors, implying that DNA is being synthesized although the cells are not dividing. Here we report that the production of adaptive lac+revertants (i) is much higher when the mutational target is o...
