Abstract

The toxic effect of NaCl and KCI on growth of the marine yeast on glucose or glycerol was studied. Above a threshold value, both salts reduced the specific growth rate, specific glucose and glycerol respiration rates and specific glucose fermentation rate, as well as biomass yields. The exponential inhibition constant, , and minimum toxic concentration, , were similar for all physiological parameters assayed. The effect of either salt on the specific activity of several glycolytic enzymes showed a similar inhibition pattern, although at much lower salt concentrations compared with the physiological parameters. In agreement with published results on glycerol phosphate dehydrogenase stimulation by salt, we present evidence that a general glycolytic flux deviation could occur naturally during salt stress, due to the intrinsic sensitivity of the glycolytic enzymes to intracellular ion concentrations.
