Abstract

DNA cloned into Escherichia coli from a serotype c strain of S. mutans allowed a galKTE mutant to utilize galactose for growth. However, the DNA does not appear to encode enzymes of the Leloir pathway used by E. coli, but rather appeears to encode enzymes of the tagatose phosphate pathway.
