Carbon starvation of Salmonella typhimurium does not cause a general increase of mutation rates.

Abstract

Mutation rates in bacteria can vary depending on the genetic target studied and the specific growth conditions of the cells. Here, two different methods were used to determine how rates of mutation to antibiotic resistance, auxotrophy, and prototrophy were influenced by carbon starvation on agar plates. The rate of mutation to rifampin resistance was… (More)
