Since the studies of Meyerhof' in 1919 it has been known that yeast contains a lactic dehydrogenase that differs from the familiar lactic dehydrogenase of animal tissues in that it functions without added coenzymes. Between its discovery and eventual isolation in pure form, about 35 years later by Appleby and Morton2 in Australia, and Boeri and his colleagues3 in Italy, many illustrious biochemists studied the properties of this enzyme or attempted its isolation4-* without realizing that yeast… Expand

The lactic dehydrogenase of yeast. III. D(-)Lactic cytochrome c reductase, a zinc-flavoprotein from aerobic yeast.
TLDR
This appears to be the first direct demonstration of the existence of Zn-flavoproteins, which are found in the respiratory particles of aerobic yeast in apparently homogeneous form. Expand
The lactic dehydrogenases of yeast. I. Is D-alpha-hydroxy acid dehydrogenase a precursor of L-lactic dehydrogenase?
TLDR
It is shown that the disappearance of d -α-hydroxy acid dehydrogenase during O2 adaptation is the consequence of the fact that the enzyme is rapidly destroyed in yeast cells once active growth ceases and that the destruction is as rapid on anaerobic incubation of the cells as aerobically. Expand

THE bulk of the respiration of most animal tissues, yeast, etc., takes place through the alternate oxidation and reduction of cytochrome. The reduction of cytochrome is mainly due (a) to a smallExpand

TLDR
Evidence is presented to show that alteration in the binding of the heme, rsulting in altered spectra or in irreducible heme of type 2, does not necessarily result in inactivation, which supports the previous conclusion that theHeme can be by-passed in the reduction of cytochrome c. Expand
On the nature of the block in the succinic oxidase system of anaerobically grown yeast.
TLDR
The virtual absence of succinic oxidase in anaerobically grown cells is thus entirely due to the absence of the electron-transport system and not that of the dehydrogenase. Expand

TLDR
The maximal rate of reduction of ferricytochrome c and ferricyanide in the presence of cytochrome b 2 and excess lactate was 14,000 moles/mole enzyme/min, higher than that known for the DPNH-dependent quinone reductase of pea seeds. Expand
Preparation and properties of cytochrome b2 from yeast.
TLDR
Thiol inhibitors and atebrin exert a powerful inactivation of the preparation, and the enzyme is specific for l (+)-lactate, which activates the reaction. Expand

A procedure for the isolation of actively respiring particles from yeast considered to be mitochondria, which stain vitally with Janus green B and oxidize the main citric acid cycle substrates as well as pyruvate and acetate, is described. Expand
