Abstract

SUMMARY: Only one of sixteen strains of Tetrahymena, studied, was found to be completely dependent on an exogenous source of serine for growth. A second strain appears to lack threonine aldolase, as it can synthesize serine from added glycine but not from added threonine. The remaining fourteen strains will utilize either glycine or threonine (as a source of glycine) for serine synthesis provided the folic acid concentration in the medium is high.
