Abstract

SUMMARY: Phosphoglycerate phosphomutase of and required Mn as cofactor, whereas the wheat germ and rabbit liver enzymes did not. In the absence of Mn, did not sporulate in normal sporulation media but it did sporulate if the proper ratio of glucose or glycerol and malate was used. Decoyinine, an inhibitor of guanosine monophosphate synthesis, induced sporulation in the presence of excess glucose and malate to the same extent with and without Mn. Apparently, phosphoglycerate phosphomutase is the only strictly Mn-requiring enzyme needed for optimal sporulation in normal sporulation media.
