2-deoxy-D-glucose (2-DOG) causes two main effects in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae: the first is glucose repression and the second is an inhibitory effect caused by a disturbance of cell metabolism. In this work we have studied both effects of 2-DOG on yeast metabolism and their influence on substrate uptake and growth of biomass. The effect of glucose repression on galactose grown cells was observed at 2-DOG concentration of 20 mg/L, and growth was stopped completely at the concentration of 50 mg/L. The inhibitory mode of action occurred at tlie concentrations higher than 300 mg/L.
