Abstract

Competition studies in continuous culture between a Hup mutant of and its presumed isogenic Hup recombinant showed that Hup activity benefited the organism under N-fixing, sucrose- or phosphate-limiting conditions but was ineffective or disadvantageous under O-, sulphate- or iron-limitation.
