Abstract

SUMMARY: The effect of CO on a decarboxylase system of has been investigated. It was found that the amount of CO produced by a culture of the living organism depended upon the proportion of CO present in the atmosphere. Under minimum the production of CO by the organism was stimulated while accumulation of CO repressed the formation of the gas. It also appeared that the presence of excess of other products of reaction repressed the production of CO. An explanation of these phenomena in terms of the law of mass action is advanced.

The effect of CO upon the production of decarboxylase by the organism was also investigated. There was some indication that the composition of the gaseous environment influenced the production of decarboxylase.
