SUMMARY: Studies of the transport of inorganic ions by fungi have lagged behind those of most other groups of organisms. In the yeast , which is the exception to this statement, most attention has been focused on cation transport: absorption of PO and SO has been examined, but the organism ‘behaves as though impermeable to Cl’ (Rothstein, 1965; of. Conway & Downey, 1950). However, during K uptake by the mycelial ascomycete net Cl absorption also takes place, though not at the same rate (Budd, 1969 a). This report confirms the absorption of Cl in this organism and describes the effect of extracellular glucose on this process.
