A mutant derived from Acinetobacter baylyi ADP1 was isolated from a screen for genes involved in the response to DNA damage. This derivative has an insertion in the mpl gene which encodes a peptidoglycan-recycling protein. We demonstrate that the insertion renders cells sensitive to mitomycin C and to UV.
