Abstract

IT has been found1 that ferricyanide (10-2 mol./litre) stops ærobic glycolysis of mammalian tumour cells, but it does not affect anærobic glycolysis of any cell in mammals. In this respect, ferricyanide differs fundamentally from all other substances which have been found to check glycolysis (fluoride2, monoiodo-acetic acid3, glyceric aldehyde4).
