Starvation for a specific amino acid induces high frequencies of rho− mutants in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Auxotrophic yeast cells were starved on solid media for their respective essential amino acid in the course of "adaptive mutation” experiments. Thereby, high proportions of mitochondrially respiratory deficient (rho−) mutants accumulated among the cells stressed on selective plates. Using a str...
