Isolation of putrescine-requiring mutants of Neurospora crassa

Abstract

Two auxotrophs of Neurospora crassa have been isolated that give a positive growth response to putrescine, spermidine or spermine. One of the mutants is deficient in ornithine decarboxylase activity and has been designated put-1. Both mutants map on linkage group VR, fail to complement and are infertile when crossed to one another, indicating that they are… (More)
