Interaction between mutations of ribosomes and RNA polymerase: a pair of strA and rif mutants individually temperature-insensitive but temperature-sensitive in combination.

A temperature-sensitive lethal mutant of Escherichia coli has been constructed by combining two temperature-insensitive mutations: a rif180 mutation that modifies RNA polymerase (RNA nucleotidyltransferase; nucleosidetriphosphate:RNA nucleotidyltransferase, EC and a strA24 mutation that modifies the ribosomal protein S12. The temperature sensitivity is a property of the combination of these two particular alleles; replacement of either of the alleles relieves the temperature sensitivity. An isogenic strain containing a different strA mutation (i.e., rif180 strA11) is not temperature sensitive. Evidently ribosomes modified by the particular strA24 polymerase altered by the rif180 mutation, which suggests that in vivo there may exist some interaction between structures of ribosomes and the RNA polymerase.[1]
