Abstract

Five classes of mutants of which are defective in methanol oxidation (Mox) have been isolated, partially characterized, and complemented using a 3A genomic library. Two classes of mutants were defective in production of the a subunit of methanol dehydrogenase, another two classes in the production of both the a subunit and cytochrome , while the fifth class produced the a subunit, but did not contain an active methanol dehydrogenase, nor cytochrome . The genes defective in these mutants were linked.
