Abstract

SUMMARY

Erythrose strongly inhibits the growth of and The inhibition can be reversed by washing the cells free from erythrose with sterile normal saline. The respiration of cells in the presence of glucose is markedly inhibited by erythrose but the oxygen uptake of cell-free extract under the same conditions is not affected. From the results of experiments on the uptake of [C] glucose and [α-C]methylglucoside, it may be concluded that erythrose inhibits the transport of glucose across the cell membrane and thereby inhibits the growth of the organism.
