The effect of maleic hydrazide on growth and mutation of a blue-green alga


Maleic hydrazide is mutagenic to the blue-green alga Anacystis nidulans at pH 5.0, producing mutations to streptomycin-resistance and penicillin-resistance, and is non-mutagenic at pH 8.0, promoting growth in low concentrations. The maleic hydrazide-induced increases in the levels of streptomycin- and penicillin-resistance are 1000 and 500 times… (More)
