Abstract

It has been discovered that expression of promoter activity can be inhibited by visible light when specific fragments of E. coli DNA are inserted in a vector system designed to assay for promoter activity. These fragments have been located on regions of the E. coli chromosome to which no gene has been assigned to date. The effective wavelength of light that produces this phenomenon has been determined.
