Glycerol utilization in Fusarium oxysporum var. lini: regulation of transport and metabolism.


Glycerol was transported in the fungus Fusarium oxysporum var. lini by a facilitated diffusion transport system with a half-saturation constant, Ks, of 0.5 mM and a maximum velocity, Vmax, of 0.9 mmol (g dry wt)-1 h-1 at pH 5 and 25 degrees C. 1,2-Propanediol was a competitive inhibitor of glycerol transport, but the cells did not actively accumulate 1,2… (More)
