On the question of vegetative reproduction in apiculate yeasts

  • Eva Streiblová
  • K. Beran


Fluorescence microscopy, carbon replicas, ultrathin sections and metal-shadowed walls were used for studying changes during cell division of yeasts. Some common features and differences between multipolar budding, fission and the so-called bipolar budding of apiculate yeasts are specified. The conclusion was reached that in apiculate yeasts we are not dealing with a kind of budding but with a type of reproduction that is synonymous with multipolar budding and fission.

К вопросу деления апикулятных дрожжей


Изменения в промежуточных стадиях клеточного деления изучались с помощью флуоресцентннй микроскопии, угольных отпечатков, ультратонких срезов и напыления металлом клеточных оболочек дрожжей. Отмечаются общие черты и различия между почкованием, делением перегородками и т. н. биполярным почкованием у апикулятных дрожжей.—Делается вывод, что у апикулятных дрожжей имеет место такой способ размножения, который, по существу, равноценен с мультиполярным почкованием и перегородочным делением.
