Abstract

The light-induced action of 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) on λ phage and plasmids yields monoadducts and interstrand crosslinks. The survival and clear plaque mutation frequency in the phage photosensitized with 8-MOP and irradiated with UV at wavelength >320 nm are increased when the wild-type host (Escherichia coli uvr +) is subjected to UV irradiation (wavelength = 254 nm) prior to phage inoculation. These phenomena are known as “W reactivation” and “W mutagenesis.” It is shown that 8-MOP monoadducts in λ DNA induce clear mutations in the phage inoculated to UV-irradiated excision repair mutants of E. coli only when the error-prone repair is performed by MucA 2 ′ B, but not PolV (UmuD 2 ′ C) polymerase. The efficiency of the SOS repair (W reactivation) of 8-MOP monoadducts in plasmid and λ phage DNA also only increases with the presence of pKM101 plasmid muc + in E. coli uvr −.
