Abstract

SUMMARY: Various strains originally designated as members of the genera , and were able to transform adenine, histidine, and tryptophan auxotrophs of to prototrophy at relatively high frequencies. These included certain strains of and . Many of the above strains were adenine auxotrophs and produced low frequencies of prototrophic recombinants when crossed with the adenine-dependent strain . Prototrophic strains of and failed to transform in these studies. Prototrophic pigment mutants of and were able to doubly transform yellow auxotrophs of to prototrophy and donor colour.
