The Incorporation of Glycerol and Lysine into the Lipid Fraction of Staphylococcus Aureus.


1. Incubation of washed cells of Staphylococcus aureus with [1-(14)C]glycerol results in the incorporation of glycerol into the lipid fraction of the cells. The rate of incorporation is increased by the presence of glucose and amino acids. The presence of amino acids increases incorporation into the fraction containing O-amino acid esters of… (More)
