A lambda cnc mutation masks the phenotype of the lambda cin-1 mutation. Eleven cnc mutations have been found. All appear to be identical and all map at a site just to the right of the cin-1 site. It is probable that cin-1 and cnc affect adjacent, or almost adjacent nucleotide pairs. Neither the cin-1 nor the cnc mutation involves large additions or deletions of genetic material.
