Comments P.15 left column bottom paragraph: "Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S. cerevisiae) is an ideal model organism for many cellular processes in eukaryotes and for method development (Karathia et al., 2011). It was the first eukaryote whose genome was sequenced, wherein 12.1 megabases define 6604 potential protein-encoding genes, where only 4% of the genes, mostly encoding ribosomal proteins, contain introns (primary sources). The circular and conserved mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) map of the strain FY1679 is composed of 85,779 base pairs, containing genes for mitochondrial small and large ribosomal RNAs, transfer RNAs, as well as mitochondrial proteins, among those subunits of the respiratory chain complexes III (Cytb), IV (Cox1, Cox2, Cox3), and V (Atp6, Atp8, and Atp9), as well as one ribosomal protein (Var1). (de Zamaroczy and Bernardi, 1986, Foury et al., 1998)."
