Abstract

New mutants of crassa having the phenotype have been isolated. Two of these mutants, like previously identified mutants, require an unsaturated fatty acid for growth and are almost completely blocked in the synthesis of unsaturated fatty acids. The new mutations map to a different chromosomal location than previously characterized mutations. This implies that at least one additional genetic locus controls the synthesis of unsaturated fatty acids in .
