Reference Tyson CB, Lord PG, Wheals AE. Dependency of size of Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells on growth rate. J Bacteriol. 1979 Apr138(1):92-8. p.93 table 1PubMed ID374379
Method The mean volume of a haploid yeast cell in exponential phase growing in YEP+Glucose at 30° [for composition of YEP see p.93 left column top paragraph]. Taken from cultures with different doubling times in range 75-84.2 min
Comments P.93 left column bottom paragraph: "The data in Table 1 clearly show that mean size increases with growth rate, especially at the faster growth rates. There is a consistent relationship between cell size and growth rate for any one medium even when doubling times vary due to differences in separate batches of media." P.94 left column 2nd paragraph: "The percentage of budded cells decreases as growth rate decreases (Table 1), as has been observed before (refs 7, 22), and it is possible to calculate the duration of the budded phase using equation 5 (see Appendix)." For median cell volume of 42±2 µm^3 see BNID 100427. See table link for cell volumes on other media, BNID 105103.
