    Abstract

    The yeast-mycelium transition of Aureobasidium pullulans (IMI 45533) was induced by adenosine and adenosine 5'-monophosphate (AMP) in defined liquid medium. During the yeast-mycelium transition uptake of adenosine or AMP and transformation to adenosine 3':5'-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) occurred; intracellular cAMP levels increased and maximum levels coincided with maximum germination. This, coupled with the findings that the cAMP phosphodiesterase inhibitors theophylline and caffeine also induced germination, indicated the involvement of cAMP in the regulation of the yeast-mycelium transition.
