Two types of fosfomycin-resistant mutants of Bacillus subtilis were isolated. Mutants of the first type (GipT mutants) were resistant to at least 200 ug of fosfomycin per ml and failed to take up exogenous glycerol 3-phosphate. Mutants of the second type were resistant to lower concentrations of fosfomycin and transported glycerol-3-phosphate as efficiently as wild-type bacteria. The glpT mutations, but not the mutations in the second type of fosfomycin-resistant mutants, map in the cysA-aroI
