Abstract

A number of deoxyribonucleoside-requiring mutants () of were isolated and their growth characteristics and ribonucleotide reductase activities were compared with those of the wild type and of a mutant (). Both and mutants required the presence of a mixture of deoxyribonucleosides for growth at 45 °C but not at 25 °C. All the mutant strains tested contained ribonucleotide reductase activity which showed heat sensitivity similar to that of the enzyme from a wild-type strain. The reductase in seemed to reduce ribonucleoside triphosphates in a similar manner to the enzyme in
