Abstract

SUMMARY: Death of after exposure to ultraviolet (u.v.) radiation or to -rays was markedly increased when the bacteria were incubated on media containing chloramphenicol or puromycin. A similar effect occurred when an irradiated histidine-requiring strain of / was deprived of its requirement but not when several other amino acid auxotrophic mutants of / were similarly deprived. The extra killing may be associated with the synthesis of RNA rather than be a direct consequence of inhibition of protein synthesis.
