Abstract

Synchronous cultures of the budding yeast prepared by continuous-flow size selection showed respiratory oscillations when the energy source was either glucose, acetate or glycerol. The period of the oscillations was about one-third of the cell cycle time (i.e. about 0·5 h). No fluctuations in heat evolution could be detected. In organisms growing with acetate or glycerol, the effects of cyanide, -dicyclohexyIcarbodi-imide and carbonyl cyanide -chlorophenylhydrazone (maximum inhibition of respiration at respiratory maxima, maximum uncoupling of energy conservation at respiratory minima) suggest that the control mechanism responsible for the oscillations is mitochondrial respiratory control The effects of cyanide and -dicyclohexylcarbodi-imide on the respiration of cultures growing synchronously with glucose were different from those for cultures growing with the non-fermentable substrates; this suggests that the mitochondrial respiratory system interacts with the early reactions of glucose utilization.
