Cladosporium sphaerospermum, isolated from salt pans was halotolerant. When grown in the presence of salt, the activities of invertase, isocitrate lyase, fructose-1,6 diphosphate aldolase and malate dehydrogenase were found to be increased and that of amylase decreased. Both, enzyme activation as well as an increase inde novo synthesis of enzymes were found to be some of the mechanisms of salt mediated changes. This may be one of the adaptive mechanisms, in halotolerantCladosporium sphaerospermum.
