TLDR
This review assesses the authenticity of inositol hexakisphosphate (InsP(6) being a wide-ranging regulator of many important cellular functions and finds that many of the proposed cellular functions of InsP( 6) cannot sustain a challenge from the implementation of a rigorous set of criteria, which are designed to avoid experimental artefacts.

Cytotoxic and antitumor antibiotics produced by microorganisms.
TLDR
The names and synonyms of 373 antibiotics with reported antineoplastic activities are discussed and is listed in alphabetical order, and a list of the most common experimental tumors is presented. Expand
Mechanism of Action of Mitomycins
The mitomycins were discovered by Hata et al. (1956) in Streptomyces caespitosus and isolated by Wakaki et al. (1958) as deep violet crystals. Porfiromycin produced by Streptomyces ardus (DeBoer etExpand
Catabolite Repression and other Control Mechanisms in Carbohydrate Utilization
TLDR
This chapter focuses on three devices: catabolite repression, transient repression, and catabolites inhibition, which regulate the utilization of many carbohydrates, which influences many aspects of microbial growth and metabolism. Expand
Mechanism of hydroxylamine-induced inhibition of beta-galactosidase synthesis in Escherichia coli.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in some strains, the HA effect involves catabolite repression in addition to interference with translation of the specific m-RNA, and the use of HA as a specific inhibitor of chain initiation is thus limited in such strains. Expand

THE ROLES OF INDUCER AND CATABOLITE REPRESSOR IN THE SYNTHESIS OF BETA-GALACTOSIDASE BY ESCHERICHIA COLI.
TLDR
During the induction phase a messenger RNA specific for β-galactosidase is produced which directs the subsequent synthesis of the enzyme in the inducer-free medium, which largely prevents the subsequent production of normal enzyme and causes the formation of an altered protein serologically related to β-Galactosids.

Thymine starvation and ß-galactosidase synthesis
TLDR
The ability of thymine-starved Escherichia coli to synthesize s-galactosidase has been demonstrated in an induction medium deprived of an external energy source and the probably function of the RNA synthesized during thymine starvation is discussed. Expand

TLDR
Cultures of Escherichia coli 15T − inactivated by 32 P decay to a survival of 0·1% are capable of synthesizing phosphatase at about 25% of the rate found in completely viable cells, which can be attributed to repression on the synthesis of catabolic enzymes in cells in which the rate of catabolism exceeds the rates of growth.
