Experimental Articles


The hypothesis that various extracellular enzymes produced by the yeastSaccharomyces cerevisiae exert a mutual influence on their secretion into the cultivation medium was tested experimentally. The statistically processed results indicate that extracellular invertase affects the secretion of acid phosphatase, and acid phosphatase affects the secretion of invertase. In addition, the secretion of each of these enzymes was shown to be subject to autoregulation.

Key words
