Genetic and enzymatic characterization of the inducible glycerol dissimilatory system of Neurospora crassa.

The glycerol dissimilatory system in Neurospora crassa was analyzed through the characterization of 18 Glp- mutants which were isolated after inositol-less death and filtration enrichment. All mutants obtained by this procedure could be assigned to one of three complementation groups. The subsequent genetic characterization of these glp mutations revealed… (More)
