Abstract

SUMMARY: Submerged growth of four dermatophytes, and has been obtained by shaking during growth. The respiratory rate (l. O consumed/hr./mg. dry weight) of washed cells from 4–6-day cultures was between 7 and 12. As commonly observed with other fungi, addition of substrate to washed respiring cells did not much increase the respiratory rate. Acetone powders were prepared from cells grown in shaken culture. Such preparations oxidatively deaminated amino-acids slightly, about as much as similar preparations of . A preparation of the enzyme asparaginase was extracted from and some of its characteristics studied.
