Suppressors

suppressor-sensitive mutant

A conditionally lethal, host range, bacteriophage mutant that produces nonsense codons and can replicate only in a host bacterium able to translate the nonsense codon; the mutation's effects are lethal (i.e., prevent replication of the virus) in a bacterium without such a suppressor mechanism.
