Minimal medium (MM) was prepared by adding 2.0 g sodium nitrate (NaNO3) to 1 L of basal medium (BM) fol- lowing Correll et al. (1987). Chlorate resistant sectors (CRSs) were generated on two media i.e. MM and PDA containing 2.5% chlorate (KClO3), represented as MMC and PDC, respectively. The chlorate served as a toxic ana- logue of nitrite (Corell et al. 1987). Four phenotyping me- dia (Correll et al. 1987) were used i.e., i) sodium nitrate (NaNO3); ii) sodium nitrite (NaNO2), 0.5 g of NaNO2 was added to 1l BM; iii) hypoxanthine (HX-), 0.2 g of HX- was added to 1l BM; iv) ammonium tartrate (NH4+), 1.0 g NH4+ was added to 1l BM. MM was also used in pairing of the complementary nit mutants

I’ve tried using the procedure on above but the minimal media is not solidifying

  • $\begingroup$ How do you expect the medium to solidify without adding any gelling substance like agar? $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Sep 23 '19 at 8:07
  • $\begingroup$ I added agar to it but it still did not gel $\endgroup$ – Omoregbee Miracle Sep 23 '19 at 12:45
