The polyamine contents of the yeast and mycelial forms of seven dimorphic fungi were examined to determine if a relationship existed between polyamine composition and fungal morphology. Although the polyamine contents differed, no consistent patterns emerged. Evidently, the observed differences in polyamine composition were not related to fungal dimorphism but rather to the growth conditions used to achieve those morphological forms.
