Abstract

SUMMARY: required CO for growth when glucose or glycerol was the sole carbon source but not when succinate or acetate was supplied. The yeast form of the fungus fixed C from NaHO into extracellular metabolites (I to 2 %), low-molecular-weight intracellular components (17 %), lipids (3 %), nucleic acids (34 %) and proteins (42 %). The only radioactive protein components were aspartate (33%), glutamate (33%), arginine+lysine (22%), and leucine + isoleucine (6 %). Nucleic acid bases that contained appreciable C were uracil (27 %), cytosine (21 %), adenine (22 %), guanine (27 %) and thymine (4 %). Carbon dioxide fixation appeared to be important for the anaplerotic biosynthesis of four-carbon intermediates and for purine biosynthesis.
