Abstract

SUMMARY: Yeast extract which promotes the growth of wild-type strains of had a potent bactericidal action on thymine-less mutants. The active principle in the yeast extract was found to be adenosine. All of the other nucleosides and their bases tested except guanine, hypoxanthine and inosine also showed various degrees of bactericidal activity. The activity of adenosine was competitively annulled by the addition of excess thymidine to the medium, but thymine showed practically no anti-adenosine effect.
