Abstract 1. 1. Yeast containing the gene MA formed both maltase and glucosucrase when grown on maltose and lost these responses to maltose when MA was replaced by its recessive allele. 2. 2. Yeast containing the gene MG formed both α-methyl glucosidase and glucosucrase when grown on α-methyl glucoside and lost these responses to α-methyl glucoside when MG was replaced by the recessive allele. 3. 3. Yeast containing both MA and MG responded heterologously to growth on maltose with the appearance…

Accumulation of trehalose and sucrose in relation to the metabolism of alpha-glucosides in yeasts of defined genotype.

TLDR
The bulk of radioactivity fixed by cells incubated with 14C fermentable sugars (glucose, maltose, methyl-α-glucoside) was shown to reside in trehalose and in washed cells the amount of the accumulatedtrehalose is fairly stable but a rapid turnover and a small accretion of trehalOSE occurs in the presence of the fermentable sugar.
The uptake of nutrients by yeasts. III. The maltose permease of a brewing yeast.
TLDR
Findings indicate that the concentration of maltose involves a protein component and that it is brought about by a system resembling both the permeases found in some other microorganisms and the maltotriose permease already demonstrated in the same yeast.
[96] α-Glucosidase from yeast☆
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the synthesis of α-glucosidase from yeast. The method is based on the measuring of the continuous release of p-nitrophenol from
Genetic analysis of α-methyl-glucoside fermentation in Saccharomyces
TLDR
The role ofThese genes in sugar fermentation and the identity or nonidentity of some of these genes with maltose and sucrose genes was discussed.
The purification and properties of an α-glucoside of Saccharomyces italicus Y1225
The purification and properties of α-glucosidase from Saccharomyces italicus Y1225 have been studied. The enzyme hydrolyzes α-D-glucosides to glucose and the aglycone alcohol. The pH optimum is
GENETIC CONTROL OF RAFFINOSE UTILIZATION IN ESCHERICHIA COLI
TLDR
Porter et al. (1953) report that, with E. coli strain B, lactose can serve as an inducer of a-galactosidase, whereas, in the authors' experience, lactoside is ineffective as a inducer in K-12.
Repressers, Cryptic Enzymes and Structural Genes
TLDR
The adaptive enzyme generated by MZ by exposure to each of the different substrates is identical irrespective of the allele or the inductor; the negatives fail to respond adaptively to the inductors indicated.
Eight genes controlling the presence or absence of carbohydrate fermentation in Saccharomyces.
TLDR
Genes controlling carbohydrate fermentation in Saccharomyces often control the fermentation of more than one carbohydrate, and some starch-positive cultures are Schardinger-dextrin-positive.
Invertase formation in Saccharomyces fragilis.

TLDR
The invertase activity, together with non-enzymic hydrolysis of sucrose by the acidic culture medium, was sufficient to account for the disappearance of the observed amount of Sucrose from media containing sucrose.
The role of alpha-methyl glucoside as an inhibitor of induced enzyme biosynthesis (enzymatic adaptation).

Abstract α-Methyl glucoside is a powerful inhibitor of enzymatic adaptation under conditions where the external inducer serves as the sole source of carbon and energy, and is also a strong inhibitor

Gene Function in the Homologous and Heterologous Induction of α-Glucosidases in Yeast by α-Glucosides
TLDR
The three non-allelic genes determining the abilities of the haploid yeasts of the Carbondale breeding stock to grow with attendant visible gas evolution on maltose, α-methyl glucoside and sucrose, respectively, have been designated MA/ma, MG/mg and SU/su.
THE BETA-d-GALACTOSIDASE OF ESCHERICHIA COLI, STRAIN K-12
TLDR
The present study has been made of a P-D-galactoside-splitting enzyme in cells of strain K-12, chosen because of its suitability for genetic analysis by recombination methods.
INTERACTIONS BETWEEN ENZYME-FORMING SYSTEMS DURING ADAPTATION
TLDR
Experiments on enzymatic adaptations in yeast to galactose and maltose under various conditions are examined and the presence of exogenous nitrogen modifies greatly the nature and extent of the interaction between the enzyme-forming systems.
Simultaneous Adaptation: A New Technique for the Study of Metabolic Pathways
  • R. Stanier
  • Biology, Medicine
    Journal of bacteriology
  • 1947
TLDR
The precision and sensitivity of the manometric technique make it ideal for studying adaptation to nonvolatile compounds, but complications arise when such substances as benzaldehyde are tested, and the results cannot be strictly compared to those obtained with the remaining aromatic compounds investigated.
ENZYME VARIATION IN MICRO‐ORGANISMS
TLDR
The increase in enzyme content in micro‐organisms may be classified according to the type of substance responsible for the increase, which may act either directly on the individual cell or as a selecting agent during growth of cells in which the enzyme has appeared as a mutation.
Genetics as a Tool for Studying Gene Structure
By making use of current ideas about the structure of genes it is possible to develop a formal scheme which will account for the continuity of genic specificity in gene reproduction, and for the
