Abstract After incubation of glucose-grown mycelium of Puccinia graminis with 2-deoxy-D-[U-14C]glucose, all cellular 14C was present in compounds soluble in 80% (v/v) ethanol. Metabolites identified included 2-deoxyglucitol, and free and phosphorylated forms of 2-deoxyglucose and 2-deoxygluconate. This is the first report of 2-deoxyglucitol as a metabolite of 2-deoxyglucose in any organism, and in P. graminis, this confirms previous proposals that the free D-glucose is directly reduced to D-glucitol in vivo.
