Function of the respiratory chain in the maintenance of fermentative competence in yeasts


Cell-free extracts of several yeasts, e+g. Saccharomyces rosei, ferment added glucose in air but not in a nitrogen atmosphere.The addition of compounds capable of oxidizing NADHz ( = DPNH) renders fermentation possible also under anaerobic conditions. Apparently, under anaerobic conditions the concentration of NAD (oxidized form) may become too low for… (More)
