Abstract

Temporal separaton of transcription and translation during nitrate reductase induction oin Candida utilis was achieved by the use of actinomycin D and cycloheximide. The yeast failed to synthesize nitrate reductase when nitrate was not provided during transcription. Nitrate thus appeared to induce during transcription the capacity to synthesize nitrate reductase. Presence of nitrate, on the other hand, was not obligatory during translation except for its essential role in maintaining the stability of nitrate reductase after its formation as well as its mRNA.
