RECENT work, conducted with the aid of various diagnostic carbon-14 tracers, has suggested that lysine biosynthesis is a valuable character in the detection of certain evolutionary relationships1–4. All the eubacteria, pseudomonads, actinomycetes1, green algæ2, and higher (vascular) plants3 examined appear to synthesize lysine in one general manner (presumably via α,ɛ-diaminopimelic acid, cf. ref. 5) and all the ascomycetous and basidiomycetous fungi1,3 (and also Euglena2) in another… CONTINUE READING
