I am very interested in your works concerning to the transduction of Gal- in E. coli K-12. If you could let me have your
following strains through Dr. K. Hirota, I should be much obliged.
Gal-1 (W- 750)
Gal-2 (W- 902)
Gal-3 (W- 892)
Gal-4 (W- 518)
Gal 5 (W- 677)
Gal 6 (W- 2070)
Gal 7 (W- 583)
Gal 8 (W- 1210)
I wonder if your Gal- mutants would be quite the same with the below described Gal- mutants that Dr. Kurahashi (National Inst.
Health) studied on the deficit of the enzyme system.
Gal-1 (W- 3091)
Gal-2 (W- 3092)
Gal-4 (W- 3094)
Gal 7 (W- 3097)
Gal 8 (W- 3178)
Gal- (W- 3142)
Gal+ (W- 3100)
If you have these all strains (Gal-1, W- 750, W- 3091, Gal-1 W....... etc), please arrange for me to get these strains in
my hand. As I asked Dr. Hirota to explain my work plan to you, he will precisely mention it in place of me.
Moreover, I should be very grateful if you could let me have reprints of your paper.
My Prof. Inoki asked me to send his best regard to you.
