We hav [sic] not as yet received Morse's comments on Kigoshi's papers; we are otherwise ready to send them to "Science".
We have a new lightening test for screening between gal kin-less[?] (gal [ . . .] -- less) and Pgal might[?] trauof[?]-less
(4- epemerase-less). The first category is not intub. By having galactose present together with glucose whereas in the latter
category the [ . . .] of the two sugars gives a very strong growth inhibition. The exp. Was done partly with the purpose
of throwing light on the pathological symplous in Congen. Galactodemia. It is almost evident now that it is gal-1-Pacc and
not galactose acc. Which is responsible for the growth inhibition. It could be due to gal-1-P being an enzyme inhibitor and
that is to some extent the case. Ginseberg has shown that gal-1-P

inhibitor USPG pyro phosphorylase. I believe, however that the growth inhibitation [sic] is rather due to a "bleeding
out" of ATP, somewhat like dinitrophenol. Wahla and Kurahash have experiments which support this latter view.
