  • a Genes listed by map position. The first gene in operons is shown in boldface type; subsequent genes in putative multigene operons are shown indented.

  • b Induction levels were determined by microarray analyses as described in Materials and Methods and are given as fold induction in wild-type cells (wt) or recA mutants relative to untreated cells. UV treatment was performed for 30 min (30′) or 60 min (60′). ND, no data.
