Abstract

SUMMARY: Pigmentation mutants of unable to synthesize iodinin, or producing it only in reduced amounts, were isolated. The abilities of the mutants to synthesize nine other phenazines were also altered. Cross-feeding experiments and the altered patterns of pigment production suggested metabolic relationships between the phenazine pigments, and a scheme for their biosynthesis is proposed.
