Method BB11 cell dimensions were determined using the confocal microscope measure function. Cell surface area and volume were calculated assuming that cells were prolate ellipsoidal spherical with a smooth cell surface.
Comments Value for cell that has not yet divided. As cell divides, size increases. Table gives Relationship between age and cell size in BB11 polyploid strain. Values for haploid and diploid strains demonstrated to be considerably lower.
