The importance of the naturally occuring nucleosides and nucleotides in the nutrition of a number of microorganisms is now well established. Such organisms as lack these synthetic abilities, by their very defects, betray the additional biosynthetic powers of organisms which do not suffer these metabolic insufficiencies. Thus, although most of the information in this field is as yet of a descriptive nature only, there is reason to hope that, through studies of the additional nutritional demands and the intermediary metabolism of these more fastidious microorganisms, much may eventually be surmised of the general metabolic sequence through which nucleosides, nucleotides, and nucleic acids arise normally in plants and animals.
