Method p.4226 right column bottom paragraph:"The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of specific growth rate on fermentative capacity in an industrial baker’s yeast strain grown in aerobic, sugar-limited chemostat cultures. Furthermore, the effect of specific growth rate on in vitro activities of key glycolytic and fermentative enzymes was investigated in an attempt to identify correlations between fermentative capacity and enzyme levels."
Comments p.4229 right column 4th paragraph:"Qualitatively, the patterns of biomass production and metabolite formation as a function of the specific growth rate of the industrial strain used in this study are similar to those reported for other S. cerevisiae strains (refs 1, 21, 24, 37). A notable difference involved the production of acetate and pyruvate, which has been reported to occur at dilution rates slightly below Dcrit in laboratory strains (refs 1, 21). In strain DS28911, acetate and pyruvate production were detected above D = 0.28 h^-1 (Table 1) only when ethanol production also became apparent (Table 1 Fig. 1A)."
