Abstract

Incorporation of radioactive glucose and -acetyl glucosamine into the walls of growing fungal hyphae has been studied using light microscopic autoradiography. Autoradiographs of with glucose as substrate and and with glucose or -acetyl glucosamine as substrate show that most of the incorporation after incubation times as short as 1 min. is at the extreme hyphal tip. -Acetyl glucosamine is incorporated less into the subapical region than glucose, and shows less subapical incorporation of both substrates than the other two fungi.
