THE OCCURRENCE OF SOME ACID PHOSPHATASES AND DEHYDROGENASES IN THE VESICULAR-ARBUSCULAR MYCORRHIZAL FUNGUS GLOMUSMOSSEAE

Authors


SUMMARY

The occurrence of acid phosphatase, glutamate dehydrogenase, succinate dehydrogenase, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and NADH and NADPH diaphorases in Glomus mosseae (yellow vacuolate Endogone spore type) was demonstrated cytochemically. Acid phosphatase was found in lysing and growing fungal structures. It was inferred that the fungus possesses an Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas system, a tricarboxylic acid cycle and a hexose monophosphate shunt.
