Transformation mapping of tryptophan loci in Micrococcus luteus.

HE recent demonstration of transformation in Micrococcus luteus strain lysodeikticus (formerly Micrococcus lysodeikticus) has made possible genetic analysis of this species (KLOOS 1968; MAHLER and GROSSMAN 1968; OKUBO and NAKAYAMA 1968; KLOOS and SCHULTES 1969). Using optimum conditions, transformation frequencies on the order of 0.1-0.7 percent of colony… CONTINUE READING
