Abstract

Chromosomally determined arsenate resistance in Escherichia coli is well characterized. Little, however, is known about chromosomally determined arsenite resistance in E. coli. Accordingly, spontaneous arsenite resistant mutants were selected in a plasmid free strain of E. coli. One mutant strain was analyzed in detail, genetically and physiologically. The mutation confering arsenite resistance was shown to be a single gene mutation. Genetic mapping studies using conjugation and transduction showed that the mutation was closely linked to the ilv region of the E. coli map.
