The DNA Sequence Change Resulting from the IQ1 Mutation, which Greatly Increases Promoter Strength

Published inMolecular and General Genetics, vol. 183, no. 3, p. 559-560
Publication date1981

DNA sequencing shows that the mutational alteration resulting from IQ1 is a deletion of 15 base pairs in the lacI promoter. The deletion creates a greatly improved — 35 homology region, explaining the 50–100-fold increase in lac repressor synthesis.
