Changes in the adenylate energy charge and the induction of sporulation in Saccharomyces diastaticus
Adenylate energy charge
Springer Online Journal Archives 1860-2000
Abstract The induction of sporulation in yeast is generally accompanied by a sharp increase in energy metabolism which is evidenced by a rise of the adenylate energy charge by that time. The energy charge can be held at a low level by limitation of the phosphate supply in the growth medium. Ascus formation remains unaffected by this treatment. This suggests that the rise in ATP production normally encountered during early sporulation is not essential for the initiation of sporulation.
