Abstract

SUMMARY: A mutation has been found which makes yeast dependent on either organic solvents or high temperature for growth. This phenotype suggested an impairment in lipid mobility, but a chemical analysis has disproved this hypothesis. A study of the physiology of the mutant shows an impairment in RNA biosynthesis. This may be due either to a primary effect of the mutation or, more probably, to a secondary effect through regulation.
