Abstract

Evidence of some effects of water deficit on respiratory metabolism is presented. Oxygen uptake by aged potato tuber discs became increasingly resistant to the effect of 0.05 M malonate with increasing water deficit, while there was an increasing retardation of oxygen uptake by dinitrophenol at 10-4 M. The same range of water deficit suppressed the evolution of 14CO2 from labelled acetate, succinate, and glucose, indicating a progressive disorganization of the Krebs cycle.
