Abstract

SUMMARY: Lysine auxotrophs have been isolated from 8602. Three of the mutants were deficient in diaminopimelate decarboxylase and accumulated and -diaminopimelic acid (DAP) but otherwise were indistinguishable from the parent strain. The fourth mutant required lysine for optimal growth, grew slowly on - but not -DAP, and the DAP which accumulated in large amounts was solely the -isomer. This mutant was deficient in diaminopimelate epimerase. No significant differences were detected between its wall composition and that of the parent strain but it was particularly sensitive to carbenicillin.
