Abstract

Starving cells of synthesize at least seven proteins that represent nutritional-stress proteins (NSP). Such NSPs are formed by both germination-competent and germination-deficient strains of . Heat-shock proteins (HSP) are not formed by starving cells. Germination-competent cells synthesize specific sets of proteins when incubated in a starvation medium that contains the germ-tube-inducing substances -acetyl--glucosamine or -proline. Both sets of induced proteins were also synthesized by a germination-deficient strain of .
