The experiments reported in this paper concern the mechanisms involved in plant respiration, particularly those involved in the oxidation of pyruvate. The interest of such a study lies in the fact that although pyruvate is well established as an intermediate in the respiratory oxidation of hexose by plant tissues,(1) it has not heretofore been possible to bring about the further oxidation of pyruvate in vitro by any enzyme system of plant origin.
