Abstract

The presence of N-acetylglucosamine is essential for the induced synthesis of N-acetylglucosamine kinase in Candida albicans. The enzyme synthesis stops and its concentration in the cells declines rapidly as soon as N-acetylglucosamine is removed from the medium. Experiments with RNA- and protein-synthesis inhibitors indicate that the appearance of new enzyme activity is dependent on concomitant new protein synthesis and the inducer operates at a transcriptional level.
