The rate of heat production in a periodically glycolysing cell-free cytoplasmic medium extracted from yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is measured with a batch calorimeter. The rate exhibits periodic variations of approx. 10% of the average heat production rate of about 54 mJ ml per minute. From this rate and the enthalpy change fro glycolysis a glucose degradation rate of 0.43 mM ming is calculated. The value fits into the 'oscillatory window' determined by a glucose injection technique. © 1985.
