Abstract

SUMMARY: Spore suspensions were used to investigate the metabolism of -hydroxy- benzaldehyde, ferulic acid, syringaldehyde and vanillin by sp., sp., sp. and sp. The intermediate products of their metabolism, -hydroxybenzoic, syringic and vanillic acids, were found to be attacked by adaptive enzymes. The formation of these enzymes was greatly decreased by the antibiotic citrinin.

The results of experiments, based on a technique in which fungal spore suspensions were used in place of hyphae, are presented in this paper. Under investigation was the metabolism of certain phenolic compounds related to lignin, which have already been reported to be utilized by soil microfungi as sources of carbon (Henderson & Farmer, 1955).
