Abstract

IT is well known that the self-reproducing genetic factors (ρ), required for the development of mitochondria, are present in the cytoplasm of yeast cell. When the cells are allowed to grow in a medium containing acriflavine or related dyes, large numbers of mutant cells with deficient respiration are produced, which tend to dominate the entire cell population after several generations1.
