Abstract

A method for isolating nitrogenase-derepressed mutants of is described, based on colour formation by colonies growing on pH or redox indicator media. Acetylene reduction activities are given for four ultraviolet-induced mutants and one naturally occurring strain growing with and without ammonium.
