Abstract

High concentrations of sodium succinate (100 m) were inhibitory to the growth of . Spontaneous succinate-resistant mutants could be isolated at low frequency. One class of mutants (I) appeared to metabolize succinate at an enhanced rate. The other class (II) showed decreased rates of succinate uptake and metabolism. These II mutants failed to show nitrogenase activity within pea root nodules.
