mutational analysis of dark endogenous metabolism in the blue-green bacterium anacystis nidulans.we describe a mutant (strain 704) of the obligate photoautotroph anacystis nidulans which behaves like the wild type under continuous illumination but which in the dark rapidly loses viability, respires little, and incorporates label into ribonucleic acid and protein at rates considerably less than observed with the darkened wild type. extracts of this mutant strain show no detectable 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (ec activity. spontaneous revertants of mutant 704 were selected as s ...19744212183
precursor of 5s ribosomal ribonucleic acid in the blue-green alga anacystis nidulans.the maturation of 5s ribosomal ribonucleic acid (rrna) in the obligately photoautotrophic unicellular blue-green alga anacystis nidulans has been studied by using polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and t1 ribonuclease oligonucleotide analysis. a. nidulans mature 5s rrna (m5) is of approximately the same molecular weight as the 5s rrna of escherichia coli, and is derived by cleavage of a precursor (p5) containing a few (three to six) additional nucleotides. some of these additional nucleotides oc ...19744204437

studies on the role of the area gene in the regulation of nitrogen catabolism in aspergillus nidulans.mutants of apergillus nidulans with lesions in a gene, area (formerly called amdt), have been isolated by a variety of different selection methods. the area mutants show a range of pleiotropic growth responses to a number of compounds as sole nitrogen sources, but are normal in utilization of carbon sources. the levels of two amidase enzymes as well as urease have been investigated in the mutants and have been shown to be affected by this gene. most of the area mutants have much lower amidase-sp ...197552352
in vitro restoration of nitrate reductase: investigation of aspergillus nidulans and neurospora crassa nitrate reductase mutants.extracts of aspergillus nidulans wild type (bi-1) and the nitrate reductase mutant niad-17 were active in the in vitro restoration of nadph-dependent nitrate reductase when mixed with extracts of neurospora crassa, nit-1. among the a. nidulans cnx nitrate reductase mutants tested, only the molybdenum repair mutant, cnxe-14 grown in the presence of 10-minus 3 m na2 moo4 was active in the restoration assay. aspergillus extracts contained an inhibitor(s) which was measured by the decrease in nadph- ...1975123779
pyrimidine biosynthesis in aspergillus nidulans. isolation and characterisation of mutants resistant to fluoropyrimidines.mutants resistant to 5-fluorouracil, 5-fluorouridine and 5-fluorodeoxyuridine have been selected in aspergillus nidulans. growth tests combined with genetic analysis showed that mutations conferring resistance to fluoropyrimidines could occur in at least seven genes. three of these fule, fulf and fura were concerned with either the uptake of pyrimidines or their conversion to uridine monophosphate. the other four genes did not affect these functions. mutations in fula probably confer resistance ...1975127929

kinetics and morphology of glucose-limited cultures of moulds grown in a chemostat and on solid media.the affinity (ks value) of geotrichum candidum for glucose determined from chemostate cultures was ca. 1 mg/1. ks values for glucose was also estimated from the radial growth rates of colonies of g. candidum and neurospora crassa grown on media solidified with agar or silica gel. an assessment is made of the use of colony radial growth rate to determine substrate affinities. the length of apical and intercalary hyphal comparte ments, internode length and the diameter of leading hyphaat the margi ...1975168829
a mutant of aspergillus nidulans defective in nad-linked glutamate dehydrogenase.a mutation leading to partial loss of nad-linked ("catabolic') glutamate dehydrogenase does not affect the regulation of ammonium-repressible activities in aspergillus nidulans. this mutation has been used to show that nad-linked glutamate dehydrogenase does not normally participate in ammonium assimilation. a mutation leading to loss of nadp-linked ("anabolic') glutamate dehydrogenase has been used to show that nadp-linked glutamate dehydrogenase is not normally involved in glutamate catabolism ...1975172777
sexual differentiation in aspergillus nidulans: the requirement for manganese and the correlation between phosphoglucomutase and the synthesis of reserve material.aspergillus nidulans was completely devoid of fruit bodies when grown on manganese deficient cultures. this result was shown earlier to be due to a lack of alpha-1,3 glucan in the cell wall. several enzymes of carbon and nitrogen metabolism were investigated in an attempt to explain the absence of this reserve material. synthesis of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, phosphoglucoisomerase and aldolase, were not strongly affected by manganese deficiency. however, phosphoglucomutase showed only 60 ...1975173248

enzymology and genetic regulation of a cyclic nucleotide-binding phosphodiesterase-phosphomonoesterase from aspergillus nidulans.a cyclic nucleotide-binding phosphohydrolase that possesses both a phosphomonoesterase and a phosphodiesterase catalytic function has been partially purified from aspergillus nidulans. the enzyme hydrolyzes both p-nitrophenylphosphate and bis-(p-nitrophenyl)-phosphate. o'-nucleoside monophosphates are the best physiological phosphomonesterase substrates but 5'- and 2'-nucleoside monophosphates are also hydrolyzed. the enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of adenosine 5'-triphosphate, adenosine 5'-dip ...1975241743
three-marker extranuclear mitochondrial crosses in aspergillus nidulans.two- and three-point extranuclear crosses have been carried out via heterokaryons involving the three extranuclear mitochondrial markers of aspergillus nidulans: (olia1), (cs67) and (cama112). all three markers appear to be located on a single functional mitochondrial genome. recombination between all three pairs of extranuclear markers appears to be equally frequent, suggesting a lack of genetic linkage. an important feature of these results is the variable and often marked non-equality of freq ...1975765725
transmission and recombination of extranuclear genes during sexual crosses in aspergillus nidulans.three extranuclear mitochondrial mutations in aspergillus nidulans, (olia1), (cama1) and (cs67), were used as markers in sexual crosses to provide information on the frequencies of transmission and recombination of the mitochondrial genome. any individual perithecium contained ascospores of only one extranuclear genotype. using mono-, bi- and trifactorial crosses it was found that all three markers could be recovered from the progeny, although the transmission frequencies were different for each ...1975765748

mutations which affect amino acid transport in aspergillus nidulans.mutants deficient in amino acid transport (aau), and unable to utilize l-glutamate as a sole carbon and nitrogen source, have been isolated. there are four unlinked genes involved: aaua, aaub, aauc and aaud. the transport levels of certain amino acids, and the growth characteristics on certain nitrogen and carbon sources and toxic amino acid analogues, indicate that: aauai has defective transport of acidic amino acids; aaubi has defective transport of acidic and neutral amino acids; aauci and aa ...19751089752
a gene cluster in aspergillus nidulans with an internally located cis-acting regulatory reported here on the fungus aspergillus nidulans has provided the first definitive demonstration of operon-type organisation in an eukaryote genome. it has been shown that the prna and prnb genes concerned with proline metabolism form a gene cluster with the regulatory region lying between the two putative structural genes prna and prnb. regulatory mutations (prnd) probably leading to relief of carbon catabolite repression, map in between prna and prnb and are cis-dominant with respect to b ...19751089903
initiator constitutive mutation with an 'up-promoter' effect in aspergillus nidulans.a mutation leading to strong constitutivity for a uric acid-xanthine permease in the lower eukaryote aspergillus nidulans has been found to be tightly linked to the putative structural gene whose expression it controls in the cis configuration. in addition, it increases the maximal induced level of transport 2.5-fold. this is the first demonstration of an initiator or promoter mutation in an eukaryote.19751089904
autolytic enzymes in hyphae of aspergillus nidulans: their action on old and newly formed walls.walls, purified from hyphae of the ascomycete aspergillus nidulans, autolyzed on incubation and liberated glucose, mannose, galactose, n-acetylglucosamine, and soluble oligosaccharides. digestion proceeded at linear rates until approximately 3% of the wall polymers had been hydrolyzed and then slowed markedly. the change in the rate of autolysis was not due to loss of enzyme activity but was caused by the disappearance of a fraction of the wall which was highly susceptible to digestion. radioact ...19751090573

quantitative tissue invasion of the murine brain as a phenotypic marker of strain virulence in aspergillus this study the extent of fungal invasion in tissues of the target organs (brain, heart and kidney) has been quantitated histologically in dba/2j mice inoculated intravenously with 3 strains of aspergillus nidulans of different virulence. this was done to determine the relation between tissue invasion and strain virulence as determined by time-mortality bioassay. it was found that quantitatively tissue invasion by a. nidulans was target organ specific. relative tissue invasion within each of t ...19751099700
homolanthionine in fungi: accumulation in the methionine-requiring mutants of aspergillus nidulans.homolanthionine, a higher homologue of cystathionine, was found to accumulate in the mutants of aspergillus nidulan impaired in the synthesis of methionine from homocysteine. the additional introduction of mutation resulting in a block at cystathionine gamma-synthase but not at cystathionine beta-synthase abolishes accumulation of both homolanthionine and cystathionine. this suggests a possible participation of cystathionine gamma-synthase in homolanthionine synthesis.19751101592

enzymatic lesions in methionine mutants of aspergillus nidulans: role and regulation of an alternative pathway for cysteine and methionine aspergillus nidulans the pathway involving cystathionine formation is the main one for homocysteine synthesis. mutants lacking cystathionine gamma-synthase or beta-cystathionase are auxotrophs suppressible by: (i) mutations in the main pathway of cysteine synthesis (cysa1, cysb1, and cysc1), (ii) mutations causing stimulation of cysteine catabolism (su101), and (iii) mutations in a presumed regulatory gene (suameth). a relative shortage of cysteine in the first group of suppressors causes a d ...19751102536
mutations affecting mitotic recombination frequency in haploids and diploids of the filamentous fungus aspergillus nidulans.a haploid strain of asp. nidulans with a chromosome segment in duplicate (one in normal position on chromosome i, one translocated to chromosome ii) shows mitotic recombination, mostly by conversion, in ade in a frequency slightly higher than in the equivalent diploid. a method has been devised, using this duplication, for the selection of rec and uvs mutations. six rec mutations have been found which decrease recombination frequency in the haploid. one mutation selected as uv sensitive showed a ...19751102911
cytoplasmic and nuclear mutations to chloramphenicol resistance in aspergillus nidulans.two chloramphenicol resistance mutations out of 123 tested in aspergillus nidulans are inherited extranuclearly as judged by transmissibility in heterokaryons, lack of segregation at meiosis, and independent segregation from all of the eight nuclear linkage groups. they do not recombine with each other. however, experiments in collaboration with g. turner and r.t. rowlands show that they do recombine with cytoplasmic mutations to oligomycin resistance (rowlands and turner, 1973) and cold-sensiti ...19751102919
pyrimidine biosynthesis in aspergillus nidulans: isolation and preliminary characterisation of auxotrophic mutants.113 pyrimidine auxotrophs, unable to synthesise ump have been selected in aspergillus nidulans. these mutants can be classified by complementation into eight groups, and genetic analysis has shown that five loci are involved. one complex locus consists of the mutually complementing pyra, pyrb and pyrc groups, as well as the cis-dominant pyrn group, members of which do not complement with members of the a, b or c groups. pyra mutants have been shown to lack cpsase-ur, pyrb and pyrc mutants have b ...19751102932

amide utilization in aspergillus nidulans: evidence for a third amidase enzyme.a mutation in a gene designated gmda has been found to lead to loss of ability of aspergillus nidulans to use benzamide, phenylacetamide and several other amides as sole nitrogen sources for growth. the gmda1 lesion results in low levels of an enzyme, called the general amidase, which has acitivity for a wide range of amide substrates. this enzyme is reressed by certain nitrogen-containing metabolites, including ammonium, but is probably not regulated by induction or by carbon catabolite repress ...19751104771
studies of partially repressed mutants at the tama and area loci in aspergillus nidulans.mutants, designated tamar, have been isolated on the basis of simultaneous resistance to toxic analogues thiourea, aspartate hydroxamate and chlorate with l-alanine as the sole nitrogen source. tamar mutants are also resistant to methylammonium. this resistance of tamar mutants is correlated with partially repressed activity of a number of enzyme and transport systems regulated by ammonium. furthermore, tam-ar mutants have low nadp-glutamate dehydrogenase (nadp-gdh) activity and also efflux ammo ...19751105154
sexual differentiation in aspergillus nidulans: the requirement for manganese and its effect on alpha-1,3 glucan synthesis and degradation.aspergillus nidulans was grown on media with added amounts of manganese ranging from 0--2.5 mum. manganese deficiency prevented cleistothecium development, although good vegetative growth was retained. subsequent analysis of the mycelium produced under mn2+ deficient growth revealed that alpha-1,3 glucan, the man carbon and energy source for fructification, was virtually absent from the cell wall. several enzymes related to cell wall composition were investigated. beta-1,3 glucanase, and very re ...19751106342

the inheritance of penicillin titre in crosses between lines of aspergillus nidulans selected for increased productivity.selection for increased penicillin production among the progeny of pairwise crosses between wild-type isolates of aspergillus nidulans resulted in the production of high-titre strains. three crosses were made between strains with increased titre derived from independent selection lines. significant genetic variation was found among the progeny of each cross, indicating that different genes for increased titre had been selected in each line. gene action was additive in each cross. renewed selecti ...19751107475
genetic control of chromosome instability in aspergillus nidulans as a mean for gene amplification in eukaryotic microorganisms.a haploid strain of aspergillus nidulans carrying i-ii duplication homozygous for the leaky mutation ade20 shows impreved growth on minimal medium. the duplication, though more stable than disomics, still shows instability. several methods were used for detecting genetic control of improved stability. (a) visual selection, using a duplicated strain which is very unstable due to uv sensitivity, (ade20, bial/dp ya2; uvsb). one stable strain showed a deletion (or a lethal mutation?) distal to bia o ...19751107799
cysteine biosynthesis in aspergillus nidulans.the existence of two postulated pathways of anabolic cysteine biosynthesis in aspergillus midulans was investigated. no activities of the postulated pathway involving s-sulfocysteine as intermediate have been detected. investigations on cyteine and methionine requiring mutants revealed independent regulation of o-acetylserine sulfhydrylase by endogeneous cysteine and methionine pools. the reaction catalysed by o-acetylserine sulfhydrylase is postulated as the only anabolic pathway of cysteine bi ...19751108603
an unstable strain of aspergillus foetidus segregating proline auxotrophs.two basic colony types have been obtained through single conidial isolation from the bode strain of aspergillus foetidus as well as from mutants of this unstable strain. type i is prototrophic whereas type ii is an auxotroph requiring proline. when a type i strain is grown on complex medium it gradually becomes overwhelmed by type ii sectors of growth. however, essentially pure cultures of type i can be maintained on minimal medium (lacking proline). the yield of glucoamylase from type ii cultur ...19751147611

the fine structure of the branched alpha-d-glucan from the blue-green alga anacystis nidulans: comparison with other bacterial glycogens and phytoglycogen.the fine structure of the glycogen from the blue-green alga anacystis nidulans has been examined. after selective hydrolysis of all (1 yields 6)-alpha-d linkages by a bacterial isoamylase, the resulting mixture of linear chains was subjected to gel permeation chromatography. for purposes of comparison, the glycogens from escherichia coli and arthrobacter sp., amylopectin, phytoglycogen from sweet corn, and shell-fish glycogen were treated similarly. the profiles of the unit chains of a nidulans ...1975806344
labeling the deoxyribonucleic acid of anacystis nidulans.analysis of cell-free extracts of anacystis nidulans disclosed the absence of both thymidine phosphorylase (ec and thymidine kinase (ec activities. thymine and thymidine were incorporated inefficiently by intact cells of a. nidulans either in the presence or absence of deoxyguanosine (250 mug/ml). deoxythymidine monophosphate incorporation was also inefficient. radioactive deoxyadenosine, at a minimally toxic level (3 mug/ml), was incorporated effectively into the deoxyribonuc ...1975809413
sequence studies on 16s ribosomal rna from a blue-green alga.the 16s ribosomal rna of the blue green alga anacystis nidulans has been characterized in terms of the oligomers generated by digestion with t1 ribonuclease. a. nidulans by this criterion is definitely a procaryote; being no more distant from bacilli or enterics than the latter two are from one another. a. nidulans appears to be somewhat more closely related to the bacilli than to the enterics.1975813006
hemolytic, cytotoxic and complement inactivating properties of extracts of different species of aspergillus.some of the biological properties of saline extracts of the mycelia of several species of the aspergillus genus, namely, a. fumigatus, a. flavus, a. niger, a. nidulans, a. parasitucus and a. glaucus, were studied. only the extract prepared from a. fumigatus was found to be hemolytic for sheep red blood cells. in contrast, all the extracts with the only exception of that of a. glaucus, had cytotoxic effects on vero cells. both, the hemolytic and cytotoxic constituents of the extracts were removab ...1975813147
counterimmunoelectrophoresis in the diagnosis of mycetoma and its sensitivity as compared to immunodiffusion.counterimmunoelectrophoresis used for the diagnosis of mycetoma was found superior to immunodiffusion (id) especially when using neat serum and 1:2 dilution (p=less than 0.0001 with neat serum; and less than 0.01 with 1:2 dilution). it is recommended for routine use in mycology laboratories for following up patients on treatment and for confirming the diagnosis of sera that are weakly positive by id.1975817400
metabolism of delta-aminolevulinic acid in red and blue-green acid was incorporated in vivo into c-phycocyanin and b-phycoerythrin in two species of the rhodophyta (cyanidium caldarium, porphyridium cruentum) and three species of the cyanophyta (anacystis nidulans, plectonema boryanum, phormidium luridum). amino acid analysis of phycocyanin-(14)c from c. caldarium cells which had been incubated with delta-aminolevulinate-4-(14)c showed that 84% of the radioactivity incorporated was present in the phycocyanobilin chromophore and less th ...197516659103
uv mutagenesis in inhibitor depleted conidia of aspergillus nidulans.uv treated conidia of a strain of aspergillus nidulans (meth gl. bial) depleted of germination inhibitory substances have been examined for inactivation and mutation induction at groups of suppressor gene loci defining three classes of methionine revertants. an exponential decline in the colony forming ability and quadratic increase in mutation frequency (for each class of revertant) as the incident dose increased were observed. the induced mutation frequency for each class and the loss of colon ...197614997599
[a genetic transfer system in a cyanophyte of the genus aphanocapsa].the possibility of a genetic transfer, through a process of transformation, has been shown in a unicellular, facultative chemoheterotroph blue-green algae, aphanocapsa 6714. similarly to the process described with anacystis nidulans, the recipient strain becomes competent when the growth reaches its second, slower, exponential phase. the genetic marker conferring resistance to p-f-phenylalanine has been transferred with a frequency 20 to 100 times higher than that of the spontaneous mutations. t ...1976817846
