Abstract

SUMMARY: Addition of calcium ions increased 2- to 3-fold the growth of 21 in a minimal glucose-containing medium. The minimal concentration enhancing growth was 25 to 50 μg/ml CaCl. Other divalent and trivalent cations tested, except for strontium ions, did not duplicate the calcium effect. Actively growing and dividing cells took up Ca, while resting yeast cells did not. The radiocalcium taken up was incorporated into newly synthesized structural material, presumably into the membrane protein.
