Unusual swollen and branched cell forms were produced in a thymineless mutant of Escherichia coZi strain c by treatment with mitomycin C, and to lesser extents, by incubation without thymine and by exposure to ultraviolet light. In the case of mitomycin C treatment the morphological changes were accompanied at first by degradation of deoxyribonucleic acid… CONTINUE READING
