Aspects of nucleic acid metabolism during nutritional deficiency in Escherchia coli

Abstract:

This thesis concerns an investigation of the effects of thymine deficiency in thymineless mytants of Escherichia coli. Evidence was available which implicated damage to the DNA of the cell as the cause of the loss of viability (thymineless death) which accompanies thymine deficiency. DNA has been extracted from bacteria before and after thymineless death and examined for chemical and physical differences. There was evidence that the DNA extracted after thymineless death was labile ...
