    ABSTRACT: A simple and sensitive method is described for the assay of ribonucleotide reductase. The advantage of this system is improved separation of ribonucleotides and their corresponding deoxyribonucleotides by paper chromatography using a filter paper impregnated with 0.1 m boric acid. A ribonucleotide reductase system from Rhizobium meliloti could be easily assayed by carrying out this paper chromatography of the sample obtained from the enzymic reaction with 14C-labeled substrate.

    ABSTRACT: Methionine, among the various additions to the medium, could only replace cobalt ion or vitamin B12 required for the growth of . It was demonstrated that there exists a vitamin B12-dependent terminal step in the methionine synthesis, that is, N5CH3-tetrahydrofolate-homocysteine transmethylase, which can also catalyze the methyl transfer from CH3B12 to homocysteine, in the cell-free extracts of Rhizobium meliloti. These facts seem to indicate that the vitamin B12-dependent pathway to methionine functions mainly among the B12-dependent enzymatic systems in the wild-type symbionts and this is the chief nutritional significance of cobalt.
