Abstract

SUMMARY: Protein synthesis and translocation of -[C]leucine, -[C]glucose and inorganic P were enhanced in cultures Sacc. grown on medium supplemented with 0·5% lactose. Ethanol (2%, v/v) inhibited translocation but not protein synthesis. Neither lactose nor ethanol affected the uptake of radioactive substances by the fungal mycelium. Cycloheximide applied to the colony margins prevented sclerotium formation and protein synthesis without inhibiting translocation. It was concluded that translocation and protein synthesis in are independent processes and are both essential for sclerotium formation.
