Abstract

Summary: Different pathways of terminal oxidation exist in killer and sensitive stocks of , variety 4, stock 51.7. The killers contain an active succinoxidase system which is absent, or present only in small concentrations, in the sensitives. The succinoxidase system might therefore either be necessary for the maintenance of the cytoplasmic particle ‘kappa’ or is intrinsically associated with it.
