Changes in sporulation ability during the vegetative cell cycle insaccharomyces cerevisiae

Cell Division


The relationship between the sporulation ability and the stage of the vegetative cell cycle was studied. The ability of mature cells to sporulate was the highest just before bud initiation and decreased rapidly as soon as detectable buds appeared. The mitotic DNA synthesis was competitive with the premeiotic one.
