13C nuclear magnetic resonance study of trehalose mobilization in yeast spores.

Using high-resolution 13C nuclear magnetic resonance, we examined the mobilization of endogenous trehalose in suspensions of yeast asci. Sporulation of yeast cells in [1-13C]acetate resulted in incorporation of label into the C-3 and C-4 positions of trehalose within the asci. During germination of these asci with [1-13C]glucose, the consumption of both… CONTINUE READING
