Abstract

Summary: Galactitol-positive strains of K12 are inhibited by the galactitol analogues -fucitol and 2-deoxy--galactitol, but not by -fucitol; LT2 is not inhibited by these compounds. Most mutants selected as resistant to either toxic compound are unable to utilize galactitol as carbon source, but a relatively rare class is inducible for the Enzyme II of the galactitol: phosphoenolpyruvate phosphotransferase system, the product of which is -galactitol 6-phosphate. The lesion in one such mutant maps near at about min 45 on the genome.
