Abstract

Summary: Arginine inhibited the competence of growing in a chemostat at a dilution rate of 0·277 h. The biosynthesis of competence-stimulating activity was only partially repressed. The inhibitory effect may be due to an alteration in the cell’s capacity for being stimulated to competence and/or in its ability to take up DNA irreversibly. MnSO at 10 restored competence immediately.
