Abstract

A number of nuclease-deficient mutants of were isolated and found to be concurrently asporogenous. The nuclease-deficient phenotype appeared to be associated with the sporulation locus. Spontaneously occurring sporogenous revertants concomitantly recovered the ability to produce extracellular nuclease activity. The position of the mutation was determined using transformation and PBS1 transduction and found to map in the same site as . The map order of and markers in the vicinity was determined to be .
