AbstractThe metabolism of C{sup 14} labeled glycolic acid by Scenedesmus has been studied using radiochromatographic techniques for the separation and identification of products. When the pH of the medium was 2.8, appreciable assimilation occurred. The products were identical to those observed in C{sup 14}O{sub 2} photosynthesis. A major reaction anaerobically in the dark resulted in incorporation of C{sup 14} in almost equal amounts in the glycine and serine reservoirs. When the algae were illuminated, a diminution in the amount of glycine was observed.
