Molybdate repair of molybdopterin deficient mutants from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

The phenotypically wild strain I3 of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, carrying a cryptic mutation at the nit-6 locus, was distinguished from strains 21gr (cryptic mutant at nit-5) and 6145c (wild type) because of the ability of I3 to grow on nitrate media containing 2mM tungstate. Molybdopterin-cofactor (MoCo) mutants 102 (double mutant at nit-5 and nit-6) and… (More)
