Abstract

We have isolated a mutant of , strain 590, which is blocked at stage III of sporulation. The mutation which is carried by this strain is linked to by transformation and defines a previously unidentified locus, . The locus is contiguous with the locus, in which a mutation causes a block at stage V of sporulation. We also give a detailed genetic map of the region of the chromosome.
