Abstract


Yeast cells permeabilized by freeze-thaw cycles in a sorbitol-containing medium provide an experimentally favorable system for the study of ribonucleotide reduction in a small number of cells or in mutant strains. Ribonucleotide reductase activities determined in such cells are about twice those found in cell extracts but properties of the enzyme, except pH optimum, are closely comparable in both assay procedures. In contrast with other organisms, the activities measured in permeabilized cells from both diploid or haploid strains exceed the demand for deoxyribonucleotide formation during replication of the yeast genome. The method has been applied to yeast cultures growing in the presence of the ribonucleotide reductase inhibitor hydroxyurea and a twofold increase of enzyme activity has been established in such cells. On the other hand, analysis of a series of hus mutants, selected for hydroxyurea sensitivity in the laboratory of Singer and Johnston did not reveal obvious alterations of the enzyme vs the parental strains, suggesting that the hus phenotype may be due to lesions other than in ribonucleotide reductase.
