To select mutants lacking dAMP uptake, log-phase cells of Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides Y were incubated with high-specific-activity [32P]dAMP and then stored several weeks at -20 degrees C to allow 32P decay before plating out. Mutants were screened for lack of labeling by [32P]dAMP. Two mutants were studied further by uptake and growth experiments with other nucleotides
