The initial steps of D-xylose catabolism in Fusarium oxysporum have been studied. The presence of the oxidoreductase pathway for D-xylose catabolism was demonstrated. The enzymes involved, D-xylose reductase and xylitol dehydrogenase, were found to be inducible and relatively specific for D-xylose and xylitol. D-xylose isomerase was not detected.
