Wright et al. (1949) announced the isolation in crystalline form of a naturally occurring complex of biotin from yeast, designated as biocytin. The possible metabolic role of biocytin in aspartic acid deaminase was studied by these investigators and the results showed that it was less active than an equivalent of biotin in the stimulation of this enzyme in aged bacterial suspensions. Inasmuch as reports from this laboratory (Lichstein and Umbreit, 1947; Lichstein and Christman, 1948) have been… Expand
