The influence of thymine and 5-bromouracil on the sensitivity ofEscherichia coli to alkylation, UV and X-irradiation


The influence is followed of an alkylating agent (triethylene-melamine) UV and X-irradiation on the survival ofEscherichia coli 15 T∋ells grown in a minimal medium containing enzymatic hydrolysate of caseine. Thymine-less death of a considerable number of cells was observed in a culture grown in this medium. A conclusive difference in the sensitivity to the… (More)
