    • Abstract


      Bacitracin was more growth-inhibitory toNeurospora crassa on a minimal magnesium medium than on a normal magnesium-medium. Both magnesium and manganese were able to counteract the growth inhibition. The antifungal activity of bacitracin was potentiated by zinc. Potassium could not counteract the growth inhibition by this antibiotic. The mycelial magnesium levels were low in bacitracin-inhibited cultures.

      Forthcoming Special issue.

    • To trigger further research on plant mitochondria, the Journal of Biosciences is bringing out a special issue titled "Plant Mitochondria: Properties and Interactions with Other Organelles".

      Plant mitochondria are quite distinct and have unique features, such as a cyanide-insensitive alternate pathway. They also interact with chloroplasts to optimize photosynthetic carbon assimilation.

      Submissions are welcome until 30 July 2023. The contributions can be original articles, short communications, reviews, or mini-reviews on any topic related to plant mitochondria.

      Authors can submit their articles online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jbsc/default2.aspx
