1. Commercial pressed baker's yeast, and cell walls prepared from it, were extracted in various ways and the products examined by a number of techniques, including infrared spectroscopy and electron microscopy. 2. The glucan components of the walls cannot be extracted from intact yeast cells by 3% (w/v) sodium hydroxide at 75 degrees , but at least(More)
1. Two fungi, Coniothyrium minitans Campbell and Trichoderma viride Pers. ex Fr., were grown on autoclaved crushed sclerotia of the species Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, which they parasitize. 2. In vitro the crude culture filtrates would lyse walls isolated from hyphal cells or the inner pseudoparenchymatous cells of the sclerotia, in which a branched(More)
Cotton fibers and various cell wall preparations from grass leaves and from the feces of sheep fed on dried grass were placed in the sheep rumen in bags made from 5-mum-mesh nylon cloth. After periods of from 3 to 48 h, bags were removed, and the contents were fixed, embedded, sectioned, and stained for electron microscopy. Some of the bacteria present were(More)
1. When disks of root tissue from sugar or red beet (Beta vulgaris L.) are washed in running aerated tap water the sucrose contained in them disappears and glucose and fructose are formed. 2. Invertase activity in the disks has been measured by a polarimetric method. Freshly cut tissue has a very low activity, but a considerable increase occurs during the(More)
Road congestion and traffic-related pollution have a large, negative social and economic impact, and we believe many of these problems can be reduced through investment in monitoring, distribution and processing of traffic information. This paper outlines how our on-going work on the TIME project (transport information monitoring environment) provides a(More)
