Investigations by Doermann (1, 2) have provided evidence for the existence of at least four distinct genetic types of lysine-requiring mutants of Neurospora. One of these (strain 4545) has been utilized in a method for biological assay for this amino acid (3). More recently evidence for some interrelation between the biosynthesis of uridine and lysine (4) has prompted further investigations of the group of lysineless mutants.
