[Effect of protein synthesis inhibitors on the activity of mitochondrial enzymes of Saccharomyces cerevisiae during desiccation].

Abstract

The work deals with the effect of carbon sources, presence of protein synthesis inhibitors (cycloheximide and chloramphenicol) and dehydration regime on the enzyme activity of the dried yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The yeast grown on molasses and dried by aeration demonstrated a notable increase of the NADH-dehydrogenase and succinate dehydrogenase activities as compared with the analogously treated yeast grown on ethanol. The latter showed a notable rise only in the activity of NADH-dehydrogenase during slow drying. Addition of protein synthesis inhibitors into the cultivation medium caused no decrease of activities of the above mentioned enzymes of the dried yeasts in any variant under study.
