Abstract

The stability of the K+ transport system in Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been studied upon inhibition of protein synthesis with cycloheximide. Addition of the antibiotic gave rise to an inactivation of this transport. This activation followed first-order kinetics and was stimulated by the presence of a fermentable substrate. A half-life of about 4 h could be calculated in the presence of glucose. The results indicate that, similarly to sugar carriers, K+ transport system is less stable than the bulk of proteins of this organism. © 1991.
