||The yeast is first cultivated for 4 h in a complete Rider medium containing 9 mM Pi and 111 mM glucose as a carbon source. Phosphate concentration was estimated according to Berenblum and Chain in the modification of Weil-Malherbe and Green (ref 16 of article). To determine dry weight, aliquots of cell suspensions were applied on filters preliminary brought to a constant weight by drying under vacuum at 85°C and dried to a constant weight under the same conditions.
||This represents a decrease greater than 5 fold compared to complete medium (see bion 103432)
