Error-prone polymerase, DNA polymerase IV, is responsible for transient hypermutation during adaptive mutation in Escherichia coli.

The frequencies of nonselected mutations among adaptive Lac(+) revertants of Escherichia coli strains with and without the error-prone DNA polymerase IV (Pol IV) were compared. This frequency was more than sevenfold lower in the Pol IV-defective strain than in the wild-type strain. Thus, the mutations that occur during hypermutation are due to Pol IV.
