Method Primary source abstract: "The physiology of Saccharomyces cerevisiae CBS 8066 was studied in anaerobic glucose-limited chemostat cultures in a mineral medium supplemented with ergosterol and Tween 80."
Comments P.544 left column top paragraph: "Assuming a protein content of 50% w/w, a concentration of 0.1 mM acetaldehyde (primary source) and a specific cell volume of 1.7 ml/gDW (BNID 112806), the turnover time of the intracellular acetaldehyde pool can be calculated to be < 0.01 s."
