||Microscopic and TEM (transmission electron micrographs) observations. Recalculation of “true” cell diameters
and cell wall thickness was done using equations, written by Dr. Zhibing Zhang (School of Chemical
Engineering, University of Birmingham, UK).
cell wall thickness obtained from various fermentation
conditions in this study was approximately 70±15nm, which is consistent with that reported by Brady
et al. (5).
