Effect of decoyinine on peptidoglycan synthesis and turnover in Bacillus subtilis.


The sporulation of Bacillus subtilis can be induced in the presence of amino acids and glucose by partially depriving the cells of guanine nucleotides. This can be achieved, e.g., by the addition of decoyinine, a specific inhibitor of GMP synthetase. To determine the effect of this and other inhibitors on cell wall synthesis, we measured in their presence… (More)
