Damage induced by methyl methanesulfonate (MMS) inChlamydomonas reinhardi


In order to get information about the mechanism of action of alkylating agents, survival was studied after treatment with methyl methanesulfonate, in an arginine-requiring strain of the unicellular green algaChlamydomonas reinhardi. Methylated cells are susceptible to further degradation if they are allowed to stand at ordinary temperature and are… (More)
