A novel extranuclear mutant of Neurospora with a temperature-sensitive defect in mitochondrial protein synthesis and mitochondrial ATPase


[C93] is a novel, extranuclear mutant of Neurospora crassa which has a normal mitochondrial phenotype when grown at 25°, but which is deficient in cytochromes b and aa 3 when grown at 37° (Pittenger and West 1979). In the present work, the phenotype of [C93] was characterized in greater detail. When [C93] is grown at 37°, the rate of mitochondrial protein… (More)
