Abstract

Siboglinum ekmani can accumulate labelled alanine, glycine, phenylalanine, glutamic acid, galactose, glucose, mannose, acetic acid, palmitic acid, lactic acid and glycollic acid from sea water at concentrations between 1 and 100 μM/1. Uptake of fructose and mannitol was not detected. The neutral amino acids were absorbed against a concentration gradient, probably by a carrier-mediated transport mechanism, and similar mechanisms may exist for acidic amino acids and glucose. Most of the compounds entered into the metabolism, but 90% of the glycine accumulated was retained as free amino acid. The presence of glucose appeared to depress uptake of alanine, but uptake of glucose was stimulated by alanine.
