Abstract

SUMMARY: Cells of were grown in the presence of several short-chain alcohols (C to C). -Propanol and -butanol induced the appearance of a mitochondrial cyanide-insensitive respiration without affecting the normal cytochrome chain whereas methanol and ethanol had no effect. Preliminary experiments indicated that the C and C alcohols interfered with oxidative phosphorylation, which explains the low growth yield and the accumulation of ethanol in the growth medium.
