Abstract

SUMMARY: In three clinical strains of and one laboratory mutant (609 ) the gene determining streptomycin resistance was probably at a single chromosomal locus. Cell-free systems from these, and an additional clinical strain, showed little inhibition of protein synthesis in the presence of streptomycin, whereas systems from sensitive staphylococci were markedly affected by streptomycin.
