Abstract

The response of yeast cells to different kinds of “stress” is not identical.Cells of the stationary growth phase synthesize three new proteins of molecular weights 68, 27 and 24 kD, compared with cells of the exponential growth phase, while heat-shocked cells exhibit new proteins of 100, 90, 84, 70 and 24 kD. After treatm ent with acrylonitrile twonew protein swith molecular weights of 70 and 46 kD appear. However, all three kinds of “stress” lead to the induction of a ribonuclease.
