In the report "Neurospora mutant lacking an arginine-specific carbanyl Phosphokinase" ny R. H. Davis [Science 142, 1652 (27 Dec. 1963)], the last sentence of paragraph 1 should read: "Early in the orotic-acid pathway of pyrirmidine synthesis it [carbamy] phosphate] as used in the carbamylation of asparate to form ureidosuccinate, a reaction catalyzed by aspartate transcarbamylase (ATC)." In the original, ornithine was substituted for aspartate.
