Abstract

A detailed summary of the content and composition of total proteins, RNA and DNA in 57 yeast-like microorganisms is presented. On the basis of the correlation between the content of amino acids in proteins the studied strains could be divided into 8 groups that differ not only in the content of proteins and amino acids but also in the RNA and DNA content. According to this characteristic the groups ofBasidiomycetes andAscomycetes could be discriminated. The present study should also serve as orientation for the screening of strains suitable for the production of fodder yeasts.
