Degradation of the nucleic acids in mixed rumen bacteria on incubation with different media.

Abstract

1. Mixed rumen bacteria were grown in vitro in a medium containing [U-14C]adenine. Radioactivity was incorporated into the purine bases of the nucleic acids. 2. Labelled bacteria were incubated with a nitrogen-deficient cell-free medium (medium A), a protozoa-free supernatant suspension from a slow-speed centrifuging of a steer's rumen contents (medium B… (More)
