Abstract

SUMMARY: Sugars produced by during growth on radioactive glucose were studied in order to establish roles for the major polyols in the general metabolism of the organism in submerged culture. From H/C isotope-ratio patterns, it is concluded that the predominant function of mannitol is that of a storage compound, possibly connected with conidiation, while ribitol appears to be primarily involved in hydrogen-acceptor mechanisms. Isotopic stability of total fatty acids throughout growth was also observed.
