Abstract

SUMMARY: Two independently-isolated thymine-requiring mutant strains of were found to possess an unusual phenotype: in the presence of CO, growth was independent of thymine. The two strains showed different profiles of temperature sensitivity. Glycine, serine and methionine were unable to relieve the thymine-dependence. Both strains were susceptible to trimethoprim under conditions where they were thymine-independent. The results are consistent with the occurrence of partial defects in thymidylate synthase.
