M icroorganisms, and especially bacteria, have been among the first biological specimens flown in space [1, 3] but, in general, the experiments performed were mostly concerned with the effect(s) of spaceflight, including microgravity, on viability, growth, mutation, basic physiology and gross morphology. To our knowledge, no study has been performed on the(More)
Axenomycin inhibits protein synthesis in vivo and in vitro in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The antibiotic acts by binding to ribosomes, most probably to the large ribosomal subunit. Mutant strains resistant to axenomycin appear to contain ribosomes that are not inhibited by the antibiotic. The responsible gene has been mapped on the VII chromosome between the(More)
