Method "The effects of dilution rate and heat stress at a specified dilution rate on the cell composition of continuously cultured bakers' yeast were studied. The cell composition of the yeast was determined in terms of RNA, total protein and the saccharides trehalose and glycogen. The medium composition was determined in terms of residual sucrose (as glucose equivalents), phosphate and ammonia."
Comments "As the dilution rate was increased from 0.1 to 0.4/h at 0.05 intervals the steady-state trehalose content decreased from 33 to 8.6 mg/g biomass, and glycogen content from 150 to 93 mg/g biomass. On the other hand, the protein content increased from 420 to 530 mg/g biomass and the RNA content from 93 to 113 mg/g biomass."
