argU10(Ts) inhibits DNA replication at high temperatures and causes the Pin phenotype at a permissive temperature. argU is the attachment site of the DLP12 prophage. A 47 bp duplication, the last 45 bp of argU plus 2 distal bp, flanks DLP12 and creates the 45 bp pauD' tRNA pseudogene, which is considered part of the defective DLP12 prophage.
