Thymineless death in Bacillus subtilis.


A study has been made of the intracellular changes occurring during thymineless death in Bacillus subtilis 2337. The kinetics of death were paralleled by the rate of breakdown of DNA. During thymineless death single-strand breaks accumulated within DNA, breakdown of approximately 13% of the DNA to acid-soluble material occurred, deoxyribonuclease levels… (More)
