The equivalence of thiamin and pyridoxine for a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. II. The loss of pyridoxine during growth and the sparing effect of thiamin transaminase activity.


The observation that thiamin (B1) or pyridoxine (B.) serves as an alternate growth stimulant for one strain of brewers' top yeast and the conditions under which this equivalence occurs have been discussed elsewhere (Moses and Joslyn, 1953). The ability of the organism to synthesize thiamin or pyridoxine when grown in media deficient in either and its… (More)
