Abstract

Syntrophism (cross-feeding) could be demonstrated between mutants of and , and previously characterized mutants of , auxotrophic for arginine, histidine, lysine or phenylalanine. Based on this cross-feeding data, the possible site of blockage in the biosynthetic pathways of the mutants could be inferred.
