Abstract

Ten filamentous fungi, belonging to five different genera of both higher and lower fungi, including oleaginous fungi and fungi known to produce secondary metabolites, all possessed both ATP:citrate lyase (17-84 nmol min-1 (mg protein)-1) and carnitine acetyltranferase activity (9-62 nmol min-1 (mg protein)-1). The possession of these two enzymes appears to be a common feature in filamentous fungi.
