Bafilomycin A1, a potent inhibitor of vacuolar H(+)-ATPases (V-ATPase), inhibited growth of Neurospora crassa in medium adjusted to alkaline pH. Ninety-eight mutant strains were selected for growth on medium (pH 7.2) containing 0.3 or 1.0 microm bafilomycin. Three criteria suggested that 11 mutant strains were altered in the V-ATPase: 1) these strains… CONTINUE READING
