A confused question.

"You isolated ts mutant defective in replication, and found to your surprise that one slow stop mutant was in a subunit of DNA polymerase III ! Why is this a surprise? Offer a mechanism by which this protein might give rise to a slow stop mutant phenotype."

i cannot figure out it...

maybe the mutant mutates and can create DNA polimerase III. so.. it can replicate :D [though it need other enzime (i.e primase, helixcase, ligase) in order to complete replication]


say it is a ts mutant that used to cannot produse DNA polymerase.. when it comes to this case.. we may say that the certain mutant can replicate... so it sure is a surprise! :D
