The induction of fungal denitrification by Fusarium oxysporum requires a minimal amount of O(2), although excess O(2) completely represses this process (Zhou, Z., Takaya, N., Sakairi, M. A. C., and Shoun, H. (2001) Arch. Microbiol. 175, 19-25). Here we describe another metabolic mechanism of nitrate in fungal cells, termed ammonia fermentation, that supports growth under conditions more anoxic than those of denitrification. The novel nitrate metabolism of eukaryotes consists of the reduction of… CONTINUE READING
