There are two distinct components of the system which limits the rate at which intact cells of S. cerevisiae C hydrolyze external beta-glucosides; one component requires metabolic energy and the other is stereospecific for beta-glucosides. The stereospecific component is localized at the cell membrane, as shown by its sensitivity to heavy metal inhibitors… CONTINUE READING
