Abstract

SUMMARY: The concentrations of lipid-bound serine (in the form of cyclic depsipeptide) and prodigiosin, in respond similarly to changes in environmental or cultural conditions so that highly pigmented cells always have a relatively large amount of lipid-bound serine. In addition, when prodigiosin synthesis is induced in non-pigmented cells, a parallel rapid synthesis of cyclic depsipeptide occurs concomitantly. Their simultaneous occurrence may indicate a common control.
