The effect of L-methionine-DL-sulfoximine, an inhibitor of glutamine synthetase, on the formation of nitrate reductase in the wild-type strain of Neurospora in the presence of ammonium ions and of glutamine was studied. Under conditions in which glutamine synthetase was inactivated, it was found that only glutamine could repress nitrate reductase. In a… CONTINUE READING
