The efflux of 36C and 14C metabolites from heat‐treated tissue was studied. A two‐minute heat treatment at 47.5°C increased the leakiness of the membranes. The heat effect may be reversed either by treatment with kinetin or may occur spontaneously with time. The spontaneous reversal is tem—perature dependent and resembles the recovery of CO2 fixa—tion after heat treatment. The loss of membrane integrity is reflected in the rate of incorporation of 32P into phospho—lipids.
