  • Glucosamine- or N-acetylglucosamine-requiring mutants of Staphylococcus aureus 209P and Escherichia coli K12, which lack glucosamine-6-phosphate synthetase [2-amino-2-deoxy-D-glucose-6-phosphate ketol-isomerase (amino-transferring); EC 5.3.1.19], were isolated. Growth of these mutants on glucosamine was inhibited by glucose, but growth on N-acetylglucosamine was not. Addition of glucose to mutant cultures growing exponentially on glucosamine inhibited growth and caused death of bacteria, though… CONTINUE READING
