Abstract

Spectrophotometric analysis of intact cells of Schizosaccharomyces pombe, harvested from exponentially growing cultures during the phase of glucose repression, revealed the presence of cytochromes a+a(3), c and at least two species of cytochrome b. 2. An absorption maximum at 554nm at 77 degrees K, previously attributed to cytochrome c(1), has been identified as a b-type cytochrome. 3. CO-difference spectra reveal the presence of cytochromes P-420 and P-450 in addition to cytochrome a(3). 4. The cell cycle was analysed by separation of cells into classes representing successive stages in the cell cycle by isopycnic zonal centrifugation. 5. Cytochromes c(548), b(554) and b(560) each exhibited a single broad maximum of synthesis during the cell cycle. 6. Amounts of cytochromes a+a(3) and b(563) (tentatively identified as cytochrome b(T) by its reaction on pulsing anaerobic cell suspensions with O(2)) oscillated in phase, and showed two maxima during the cycle; the second maximum of cytochromes a+a(3) was coincident with a maximum of activity of enzymically active cytochrome c oxidase. 7. The amount of cytochrome P-420 decreased during the first three-quarters of the cell-cycle, whereas that of cytochrome P-450 increased during this period. 8. The discrepancy between spectrophotometric and enzymic assay of cytochrome c oxidase, the changing ratio of cytochrome a(3)/cytochrome a and the relationship between changes in cellular content of cytochromes and previous observations on respiratory oscillations during the cell cycle are discussed.
