SOS response


Also found in: Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.
The coordinate induction of genes in response to certain types of DNA damage; many of induced gene products facilitate repair of the damaged DNA, but the repair processes result in numerous mistakes in the repaired DNA, a process called error-prone repair

SOS response

DNA REPAIR processes in BACTERIA in response to severe DNA damage, for example exposure to ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT or other stimuli.

Our hypothesis is that the reduced virulence seen in the Pst DC3000 uvrD mutant is due to perturbation of the SOS response. In order to test this hypothesis, we are generating lexA mutants of Pst DC3000.
Researchers have shown that the presence of antibiotics activates SOS response and thus increases concentration of RecA protein.
