To facilitate construction of mutants harboring Δlac for use in gene fusion studies, strains were constructed that carry the trasposon Tn 10 next to the well defined lac deletion U169. This deletion can now be moved to other Escherichia coli strains in transductional or conjugational crosses by selecting resistance to tetracycline.
