Abstract

Growth inhibition of the dnaA(Cs) mutant, which overinitiates chromosome replication, was shown to be dependent upon the nucleoid protein H-NS. [3H]thymine incorporation experiments indicated that the absence of H-NS inhibited overreplication by the dnaA(Cs) mutant. In addition, the temperature-sensitive phenotype of a dnaA46 mutant was enhanced by disruption of H-NS. These observations suggest that H-NS directly or indirectly facilitates the initiation of chromosome replication.
