The uptake and incorporation of macromolecular precursors in germinating Saccharomyces cerevisiae ascospores were investigated. Addition of cycloheximide at various times during germination revealed that protein synthesis can occur within 20 min after the spores are shifted to glucose-containing media. The time of initiation of uptake and incorporation of several amino acids differed; this can be attributed to differing amino acid pool levels in the spores, as well as differing transport… CONTINUE READING
