When protein synthesis was blocked in temperature-sensitive deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis mutants of Escherichia coli at nonpermissive temperatures, it reduced the amount of apparent subsequent chain elongation to approximately half that observed in the mutants either at nonpermissive temperatures alone or when protein synthesis was blocked at the permissive temperature. Blocking protein synthesis at the nonpermissive temperatures for periods of 40 min caused the loss of ability to reinitiate deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis at the permissive temperature.
