Abstract

Ethanol is one of the products of the metabolism of glucose by The amount produced is directly related to the concentration of glucose in the medium. The fungus utilizes ethanol as a sole source of carbon but is relatively intolerant of ethanol in its environment. Ethanol induces germ tube formation by blastoconidia of Germination was not seen under fermentation conditions even though the amount of ethanol produced was in the range that induced germ tubes when added to phosphate buffer. Ethanol also induces to form stress proteins that are similar to heat shock proteins. The possibility that stress proteins may regulate germ tube formation by is discussed.
