Abstract: Measurements obtained by the direct method of Warburg definitely show that glycerol has an effect on the oxygen consumption of a whole cell preparation of Anthopleura elegantissima. However, inconclusive evidence from the utilization of U-14C glycerol has not shown whether glycerol is directly metabolized or inductively used by A. elegantissima cells. A comparison with other results for a similar investigation with A. xanthogrammica, shows that whole cell preparations of both A. elegantissima and A. xanthogrammica react in the same manner to glycerol.
