1 Department for Molecular Biomedical Research, VIB, Ghent, Belgium
2 Department of Biomedical Molecular Biology, Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium
It was obtained from Dr S. Gottesman3
3 Laboratory of Molecular Biology, NCI, NIH, Bethesda, USA
Containment level: This strain has been assigned the containment level Class 1 following the European Directive 2009/41/EC on the contained use of genetically modified organisms, and its updates (see also the Belgian risk group classification).
Medium: LB-Lennox
Selection marker: /
Temperature: 37°C
Genotype: lon-100 Δ(gal-pgl)324 lac thi rpsL
Phenotype: StrR Lon- non-mucoid
Properties: -
Further information: The Lon protease plays a major role in the proteolytic machinery of E. coli. Lon mutants are highly pleioptropic and produce mucoid colonies that are difficult to handle. The (gal-pgl) deletion eliminates mucoidy and restores normal colony morphology.

Lon mutants may be useful in stabilizing heterologous proteins expressed in E. coli (see e.g. Remaut et al., 1983).
