Abstract

Summary: The accumulation of amino acids and the excretion of ammonium have been studied in various ammonium assimilation mutants, together with the labelling of glutamine in the presence of [U-C]sucrose when grows on glutamine as the nitrogen source. Ammonium coming from glutamine degradation by the ω-amidase pathway is assimilated by NADP-dependent glutamate dehydrogenase and glutamine synthetase. The operation of these enzymes results in a cycling of glutamine that seems to be essential for cell growth. In addition, glutamine is also converted to glutamate by glutamate synthase.
