Abstract

SUMMARY: Homogenates of var. 4, stock 47.8 (sensitive), grown in axenic culture contain enzymes of the glycolytic, the citric acid cycle, and the pentosephosphate pathway. The presence of the following enzymes has been demonstrated: hexokinase, phosphoglucomutase, phosphohexoisomerase, aldolase, triosephosphate dehydrogenase, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, 6-phospho-gluconic acid dehydrogenase, pentosephosphate isomerase, citric acid oxidase, isocitric acid dehydrogenase, & α-ketoglutaric acid dehydrogenase, succinic acid oxidase, malic acid dehydrogenase, glutamic acid dehydrogenase, fumarase, and acid phosphatase. The presence of phosphorylase, transaldolase and transketolase is indicated.
