Abstract

In contrast to the previously held notion that nitrogen catabolite repression is primarily responsible for the ability of yeast cells to use good nitrogen sources in preference to poor ones, we demonstrate that this ability is probably the result of other control mechanisms, such as metabolite compartmentation. We suggest that nitrogen repression is functionally a long-term adaptation to changes in the nutritional environment of yeast cells.
