Genetic analysis of mitochondrial resistance to tetracycline in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Abstract

yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, include tetracycline (Clark-Walker and Linnane, 1966) and the strain-dependence of degree of inhibition by this antibiotic (i.e. genetic control of tolerance level) has been demonstrated (Wilkie, Saunders and Linnane, 1967). The work described here deals with the analysis of spontaneous resistant mutants isolated from sensitive strains of S. cerevisiae and provides more detailed information on the genetic control of mitochondrial resistance to tetracycline.
