From a screening of a few Ustilaginales fungi for free lysine accumulation, Sphacelotheca sorghi ITCC No. 591 was found to accumulate 50 ll-gfml of free lysine in the culture medium. However, it was later seen that the free lysine content of the culture broths could not be increased much unless cell lysis took place. Experiments were also carried out to increase the free lysine content of the culture broths of U. maydis PRL No. 1092. It was found that U. maydis maintained on sterilised corn, yields up to 400 p.g of free-L-1ysinejml in its culture medium in five days.
