Abstract

Growth of on glutamate as sole carbon source only occurs in strains carrying mutations that increase the expression of genes encoding glutamate transport systems. From an analysis of mutants able to grow on glutamate we have identified a genetic locus that when mutated elevates the expression of the GltII glutamate/aspartate transport system. The mutants exhibit increased sensitivity to the toxic aspartate analogues cysteate and -threo--hydroxyaspartate. Data from the analysis of mutants that are impaired in this transport activity are consistent with the presence of the structural gene for the transport system at the same genetic locus. The locus was mapped by P1 transduction to a region of the chromosome lying at approximately. 92·5 min on the genetic map.
