Deoxyribonucleic Acid Synthesis After Inhibition

Abstract

The degree to which the rate of deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis in thycultures of Escherichia coli is stimulated after a period of thymine starvation is shown to be a function of the concentration of thymine present as well as of the culture doubling time. Inhibition of deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis by nalidixic acid yields comparable results. Periods of… (More)
