Abstract

A mutant defective in ornithine carbamoyltransferase activity and having a concomitant aerial mycelium-negative phenotype was isolated from Streptomyces fradiae. The aerial mycelium formation of the mutant could be restored by replacing -arginine with -citrulline in the minimal medium. The possibility that the ornithine cycle is connected with the regulation of aerial mycelium formation is discussed.
