Hypervariability, a New Phenomenon of Genetic Instability, Related to DNA Amplification in Streptomyces ambofaciens

Abstract : The wild-type strain Streptomyces ambofaciens DSM 40697 exhibits a high degree of genetic instability. Pigment-defective colonies were observed in the progeny of wild-type colonies at a frequency of about 0.01. While only 13% of these pigment-defective colonies gave rise to homogeneous progeny exhibiting the mutant parental phenotype, 87% of the mutant colonies gave rise to heterogeneous progeny without a preponderant phenotype. This new phenomenon of instability was called hypervariability. In addition, 21% of the mutant strains arising in hypervariable progeny contained highly reiterated DNA sequences, while amplified DNA sequences could be detected in neither stable pigment-defective mutant clones nor in wild-type clones. These results indicate a frequent association between genetic instability and hypervariability and a frequent association between hypervariability and amplification of DNA sequences.
