Abstract

SUMMARY: Fatty acids are required for the growth of (Bizzozero) Castellani et Chalmers; myristate or palmitate satisfies this requirement. Oleate increases the crop of organism in a medium containing limiting concentrations of myristate or palmitate. When [1-C]-myristate was added to the medium the cells of contained myristate, palmitate, stearate, oleate and linoleate with approximately the same molar specific radioactivity as myristate. Thus can synthesize both saturated and unsaturated fatty acids of higher molecular weight from myristate.
