Cultures of isocitrate dehydrogenase-deficient (icd) mutants were overgrown by double mutants (icd glt) lacking citrate synthase activity also. The icd mutants grew more slowly than wild-type cells or the double mutants because they accumulated an inhibitory metabolite (possibly citrate). Intracellular citrate levels were several hundred-fold higher in icd(More)
We report the kinetic characteristics for D-galactose, 2-deoxy-D-glucose and 3-O-methyl-D-glucose transport in a galactokinase null-allele mutant of a Chinese hamster V79 cell line. GalKl cells exhibited a Km and Vmax for D-galactose, 2-deoxy-D-glucose, and 3-O-methyl-D-glucose transport of 8.6 +/- 2.6 mM and 26.1 +/- 7.2 nmol/mg p/min, 4.1 +/- 1.2 mM and(More)
Levels of several intermediary metabolites were measured in cells grown in acetate medium in order to test the hypothesis that the glyoxylate cycle is repressed by phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP). Wild-type cells had less PEP than either isocitrate dehydrogenase - deficient cells (which had greater isocitrate lyase activity than the wild type) or isocitrate(More)
To understand further the association between high-level resistance to kanamycin and penicillin tolerance in group A streptococci, high-level resistance to kanamycin was transferred from a penicillin-tolerant group A streptococcal strain possessing a high-level resistance to kanamycin to a penicillin non-tolerant, kanamycin-susceptible group A streptococcal(More)
Many different translocatable elements have been identified and characterized as normal constituents of the bacterial, plasmid and phage genomes (Kopecko 1980; Starlinger 1977). Such elements, referred to as insertion sequences (IS) or transposons (Tn), appear to be mostly responsible for several classes of chromosomal rearrangements (Anderson and Roth(More)
