Abstract

SUMMARY

The isolation of a new killer/sensitive phenotype of the yeast, is described. Killer/sensitive yeast cells are killed by the killer factor (KF) secreted by killer yeast cells. The killer/sensitive cells also secrete a new killer factor (KF) which kills sensitive cells. The production of KF by killer/sensitive cells renders them less sensitive to KF than sensitive cells. Sensitive cells are most susceptible to the action of KF in log phase. KF is a thermostable protein- containing killer factor.
