Nitrogen regulation of amino acid utilization by Neurospora crassa.

By R M DeBusk and S Ogilvie


The production of an extracellular deaminase activity involved with the utilization of amino acids as sole sources of nitrogen is under the control of the nit-2 locus of Neurospora crassa. This locus is the sole major nitrogen regulatory locus described for N. crassa and is believed to encode a positive effector required for induction of activities involved with the utilization of alternate nitrogen sources. Production of deaminase activity requires the lifting of nitrogen metabolite repression, the presence of a functional nit-2 gene product, and specific induction by amino acids. Additional parameters of enzyme production are described
