Abstract

Summary: The utilization of -ribose by yeasts of the genus was examined with respect to aerobic growth, respiration and entry of ribose into the cells. (2011) could respire -ribose, but not use it for aerobic growth. (187) neither respired nor grew on -ribose, though it entered the cells of this yeast either by simple diffusion or, possibly, by the -glucose carrier, this having a very low affinity for -ribose. (5097) respired and grew on -ribose; kinetic evidence is given for this yeast having two ribose carriers, one inducible and the other constitutive.
