Abstract

Glucose, fructose and trehalose, but not sucrose, supported the growth of Mycelial suspensions rapidly metabolized [C]glucose, which was shown to be taken up by a mechanism saturated at 1 m. Comparable experiments with [C]sucrose were complicated by contaminating [C]hexose but provided no conclusive evidence for sucrose uptake. Mycelial extracts hydrolysed sucrose at 7% of the rate found with trehalose. It is suggested that the fungus cannot grow on sucrose because it lacks a mechanism that permits uptake of sucrose carbon.
