Dear Cavalli:
I enclose strains 58 = 175 biotinless.
W1305 M-T-L-F + and
W1678 Serine (or glycine); proline.
Please let me know if these don't grow out -- I am still experimenting with this means of preservation.
[END PAGE ONE]
[BEGIN PAGE TWO]
I must agree with you now about the biotin requirement of "B-H-". Methionine does strongly stimulate the biotinless, but this is not sufficient to explain the behavior of present 58-161 stocks. I am trying to recover an earlier lyophilled isolate of 58-161.
Sincerely
Joshua Lederberg
