A Study of Phosphate Metabolism in Brewer’s Yeasts by Means of Radioactive Phosphorus P32



A considerable part of the phosphorus in live yeast cells and certain other microorganisms is incorporated in the salts of polyphosphoric acids — polyphosphates. Polyphosphates are chain-like compounds in which the phosphate groups are connected to each other by the anhydride bond P—O—P. Cyclically condensed phosphates (metaphosphates) have not been detected up till now in substances of biological origin.
