The influence of several variables for nitrosoguanidine mutagenesis inLactobacillus plantarum

Lactobacillus plantarum is a lactic acid bacterium responsible for the lactic fermentation of Spanish-type green olives. N-Methyl-N′-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG) appears to be the most potent chemical mutagen and now is widely used by bacterial geneticists because it induces a high frequency of mutation. The efficiency of the MNNG treatment under a… CONTINUE READING
