Streptomycin Point Mutants in S. typhimurium

One method to locate a gene on the chromosome if it has a selectable phenotype is to transfer it by conjugation and look for linkage to known genes. The strain with the selectable marker e.g., Tn10 with Tet-res can be made Flac(+) by conjugation and selection for Lac(+); this strain can be mated as donor to a strain with a known auxotrophic mutation (e.g., trp) with selection for Tet-res (from the donor chromosome) and Str-res (counter-selection against the donor cell), and the linkage between Tet-res and the Trp(- )phenotype can be determined. A set of about 40 Str-res strains, each with a single auxotrophic mutation at locations around the chromosome, has been constructed, as listed below.
