Quantitative analysis of the effectiveness of dark repair in the system E. coli-phage T7

Abstract

Comparing the initial slopes of dose effect curves obtained with repair and without it in the cases of UV and NMU inactivation we could determine the value β characterizing quantitatively the probability of the repair process of the initial damage. The values found for UV and NMU repair were similar. This agreement supports the opinion that the damages provoked by different agents repair, at least at the beginning of inactivation curves, by the same mechanism. Our model constructed for the interpretation of UV damage repair does not fit well with experimental data obtained after NMU inactivation. This suggests that the effectiveness of repair depends on the extent of NMU damage.
