The purpose of the present viork is to determine by vrhat mechanism Â£, echinulata recovers from inhibition by intermcdiate-chain-length fatty acids. Experiments were initiated to investigate the concept that Â£Â» echinulata recovered from the inhibition by altering its endogenous composition. The problem was approached at the ciiltural and molecular levels. At the cultural level, experiments were designed to sec if the endogenous composition of Â£. echinulata determined its response to fatty acids; that is, whether or not respiration v:as inhibited or stimulated.
