  • The composition of the cell pigment of three mutants (PN1, PN2, PN3) of a non-acid-fast strain ofMycobacterium phlei (PN) induced with UV-radiation was investigated. It was found that the mutants contain carotenes typical for the original parent strain, but that the quantity of the colourless precursor, phytoene, is substantially lower, and, on the contrary, the amount of lycopene is increased (especially in mutants PN2 and PN3). In addition, all mutants synthesized xanthins in considerable… CONTINUE READING
