We previously proposed the occurrence of multiple pathways in the ergosterol biosynthesis of yeast, based on the results of examination of 14C-incorporation into sterols from L-[methyl-14C]methionine which was given to the intact cells of yeast. This led us to investigate the validity of the pathways by experiments with the cell-free system. Highly active… CONTINUE READING
