    We have cloned a gene from a Salmonella typhimurium with the ability to complement the rfaC mutation (heptose-deficient lipopolysaccharide, sensitivity to rough-specific bacteriophages, and susceptibility to hydrophobic antibiotics)...

    ..The rfaL gene is transcribed in the opposite direction in a separate operon which may also include rfaC. An incomplete open reading frame with homology to an Escherichia coli gene in the same region, rfaY, was found on ..
