Abstract

Paper chromatography, descending, using the solvent system: n-butanol: acetic acid: water (8: 1: 1. v/v) separated semen components which supported growth of a carnitine-requiring mutant of the yeast. Torulopsis bovina. These chromatographic zones contained free L-carnitine. its acetyl and propionyl esters, esters with 4-carbon acids and the amino acid arginine.
