Summary The change in the α-glucoside permease activity of baker's yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, has been followed in the presence of maltose and/or glucose in the medium. Three separate effects of glucose on the permease were distinguished: an immediate effect that apparently involves a conformational transformation of the permease, an inactivation of the permease before the initiation of growth, and a repression and derepression of the synthesis of permease. Conceivable mechanisms for regulation of the glucose effects are briefly discussed.
