Mutants of Mycobacterium smegmatis impaired in stationary-phase survival.

Abstract

A bank of 600 insertional mutants of Mycobacterium smegmatis was screened for mutants defective in stationary-phase survival. Of 74 mutants picked by the initial screen, 21 had stationary-phase survival defects and 7 of these were studied in more detail. In general, mutants survived stationary phase significantly less well in rich medium than under carbon… (More)
