An acetate-requiring mutant of Methanococcus maripaludis allowed efficient labeling of riboses following growth in minimal medium supplemented with [2-(13)C]acetate. Nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectroscopic analysis of purified cytidine and uridine demonstrated that the C-1' of the ribose was about 67% enriched for 13C. This value was inconsistent(More)
