Biochemical genetics of Neurospora.

Genetics of arginine biosynthesis in Neurospora crassa.

A large number of arginine-requiring mutants of Neurospora was isolated, using a strain already partially impaired in an enzyme of the pathway, and several new loci were defined and mapped, suggesting a bifunctional gene, possibly controlling two steps in ornithine synthesis.

The use of mutants in the study of metabolism

It will be shown that methods contributed by the field of biochemical genetics lead to conclusions that are consistent with, and complementary to, those derived from isotope and enzyme studies.

Genetic control of aspartate transcarbamylase by the pyr-3 locus of Neurospora crassa.

Arginine synthesis in Neurospora crassa; Genetic studies.

Nine mutants of Neurospora crassa which require arginine as a nutrient but cannot use citrulline were obtained from various sources and it was concluded that the high arg + frequency is due to selection, and that the mutants might be pseudoalleles.

Genetic studies of mutants of Neurospora crassa lacking ornithine transcarbamylase

Arginine has long been of interest to chemists, biochemists and biologists because of its close relation¬ ship to urea and there were indications that arginine biosynthesis was more complex than originally believed.

Enzymes of Deamination, Decarboxylation, Transmethylation and Intermediary Metabolism

From the viewpoint of comparative biochemistry it would, for instance, be interesting to know the nature of the enzyme synthesizing carbamyl phosphate in higher plants and fungi.
