Abstract

SUMMARY: Five mutants were isolated at the 2 gene on the basis of their inability to utilize hypoxanthine as a sole source of nitrogen. These mutants failed to utilize the purines adenine, hypoxanthine, xanthine, uric acid, allantoin and allantoic acid, although they could utilize urea and ammonium. The 2 mutants appeared to be defective in purine induction of uricase, allantoinase, allantoicase and ureidoglycollase activities but retained wild-type activity of the constitutively synthesized urease. The 2 mutations were recessive.
