There was no correlation between glutamate dehydrogenase activity and the ability to excrete glutamic acid in the wild type and two auxotrophic mutants of . Differences in the ability to excrete glutamic acid were attributed to mechanisms which regulated the availability of 2-oxoglutarate, as this intermediate induced the synthesis of glutamate synthase.
