THE ROLE OF LIPID PEROXIDATION IN THE FORMATION OF YEAST PROTOPLAST COMPETENCE TO GENETIC TRANSFORMATION
The induction of protoplast competence is found to occur against a background of an increase in the level of lipid peroxidation. The inhibitor of peroxidation of lipids (ionol, a synthetic antioxidant) considerably decreases the frequency of their transformation.
