Creating auxotrophic mutants in Methylophilus methylotrophus AS1 by combining electroporation and chemical mutagenesis


Stable auxotrophic mutants of the methylotroph Methylophilus methylotrophus AS1 were obtained by a novel mutagenesis technique in which electroporation is used to transport the chemical mutagen N-methyl-N′-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG) across the cell membrane. By combining chemical mutagenesis with electroporation and screening single colonies for… (More)
