Method Electron micrographs were projected at a final magnification of about 15,000x to 20,000x, and cell length and cell diameter were measured. At least 150 ceIls were measured for each sample, and dimensions were calculated according to a calibration grid which was photographed at the same magnification.
Comments Value is mean of cells grown on glycerol and glucose. See BNID 100002,104113,104825,104333
