       In order to find a polA mutant strain of E.coli, i suggest you to
consult the "E. coli genetic stock center" web server
(http://cgsc.biology.yale.edu/cgsc.html) and to look for polA in the
"Gene Symbol Nameserver: Check for use as either Symbol or Synonym". In
this case you cill have the choice between 15 different strains carying a
polA mutation. In order to have the genotype of those strain choose anyone
and "click" on it.
         I hope you will find the strain of your interest.
