Abstract

The interaction between genes of conferring constitutive synthesis of isocitrate lyase ( and ) and fluoroacetate resistance () has been investigated. Although mutants are unable to induce the glyoxylate cycle enzyme isocitrate lyase in response to acetate as sole carbon source, this phenotype was suppressed in recombinants of the type . The and mutations do not alter significantly the activities of eight enzymes of intermediary metabolism assayed. We conclude that the genes are probably bona fide isocitrate lyase regulatory genes.
