Heating cultures of Leishmania braziliensis panamensis (grown at 26 degrees C) to 34 degrees C for 1.5-12 h transformed the cells to an ellipsoidally shaped form. The heat treatment caused an increase in the rate of oxidation of both medium and long chain fatty acids but decreased the rate of oxidation of [1-14C]glucose. The rate of fatty acid oxidation… (More)
