Translated from Doklady Akad. Nauk SSSR 133(4): 976-979. 1960. This was done by measuring the evolution of anaerobic and aerobic carbon dioxide and calculating their ratios for healthy and infected tubers. With infection anaerobic infection was stimulated. Since the type of fermentation is different for healthy and infected tubers the ratios cannot be compared. By comparing data on the change in sensitivity to sodium fluoride in the respiration of healthy and infected tubers with data obtained by direct measurement of the initial stages of carbohydrate breakdown by the pentose phosphate pathway, it can be concluded that this respiratory pathaway is involved in protective reactions of potato against Phytophthora.
