Abstract

SUMMARY: When 3--methyl glucose is actively transported into the fungus metabolizable soluble carbohydrate is converted into polysaccharide and other insoluble material such that the total soluble carbohydrate concentration remains constant. Uptake of 3--methyl glucose from 1.0 mM solution is inhibited by equimolar glucose, fructose, mannitol or arabitol and by potassium acetate, both ionic species being involved. The results are discussed in relation to the control of hyphal osmotic pressure.
