The dinB operon and spontaneous mutation in Escherichia coli.

Apparently conflicting data regarding the role of SOS-inducible, error-prone DNA polymerase IV (DinB) in spontaneous mutation are resolved by the finding that mutation is reduced by a polar allele with which dinB and neighboring yafN are deleted but not by two nonpolar dinB alleles. We demonstrate the existence of a dinB operon that contains four genes, dinB-yafN-yafO-yafP. The results imply a role for yafN, yafO, and/or yafP in spontaneous mutation.[1]
