Investigations were carried out to evaluate the level of incorporation of radiolabeled 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) and metabolites into the bacterial biomass of two different bacterial species after cometabolically mediated TNT transformation. Biotransformation experiments with 14 C-TNT indicated...
Fragile mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae require osmotic stabilizers and lyse in hypotonic solutions. A single recessive mutation, srb1 , is responsible for their phenotype, but the cause of cell lysis remains uncertain. We have analyzed three possible mechanisms for this behavior: comparative...
