Title Deletion mapping of the polA-metB region of the Escherichia coli chromosome.
Journal J. Bacteriol.
Abstract A lambdacI857 prophage inserted into one of the genes of the rha locus was used to select deletions unambiguously ordering the markers polA-glnA-rha-pfkA-tpi-metBJF. Transduction with phage P1 indicates at least 70% linkage between glnA and polA. The order of the pfk and tpi markers is reversed from that previously published. Despite the relatively large distance separating the glnA and rha loci, deletions removing this entire region have no obvious phenotype. The isolation of Tn10 transposons integrated at different sites between rha and glnA greatly facilitated this work.
