Abstract

The growth of colonies of and on solid media in plate cultures was studied. When grown on defined media containing 10-50 mM-glucose, did not cause a significant reduction in the glucose concentration of the medium in advance of colonization, but did cause the formation of a steep glucose concentration gradient in the substrate below the colony; the medium directly below the centre of a 7 cm diameter colony of was exhausted of glucose even when the fungus was grown on medium containing 50 mM-glucose. Penicillin produced by colonies of accumulated in the medium in advance of fungal colonization. For a period up to about 18 d after inoculation, the concentration of penicillin in the medium throughout the plate increased with colony development and thereafter, except at the margins of the plate, decreased.
