Isolation and characterization of the Haemophilus influenzae uvrA gene.

Published

Journal Article

The uvrA gene Haemophilus influenzae (Hi) was cloned and sequenced. Analysis of the deduced amino acid sequence revealed 81% identity and 90% similarity with the Escherichia coli UvrA protein. Consistent with a role of Hi uvrA in DNA repair, a Hi uvrA mutant exhibited increased sensitivity of UV irradiation. Furthermore, Hi uvrA was able to complement a mutation in the E. coli uvrA locus.
