The influence of thioglycolic acid, aneurin and sodium chloro-phyllin upon yeast cultures was examined. While the thioglycolic acid as a cellular poison produced a decrease of the dry weight and ergosterin volume, aneurin increased the dry weight by 17%, and the ergosterin volume by 16%. By the addition of sodium chlorophyllin the increase amounted to 18% of the dry weight and that of ergosterin by 40%. An interpretation of these results is given.
