Abstract We have isolated mutants of Streptococcus faecalis whose growth is resistant to inhibition by dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCCD). These mutants were isolated by direct selection without using a mutagenic agent. It was found that the adenosine triphosphatase in plasma membrane preparations from all the mutant strains was about 100-fold less sensitive to inhibition by DCCD than the enzyme in wild type membranes. In addition the energized uptake of K+ and cycloleucine which is inhibited by… CONTINUE READING
