Method P.15351 left column 2nd paragraph: "The aim of the present study was to investigate the regulation of hexose transport in S. cerevisiae under a wide range of defined growth conditions. Glucose transport kinetics were determined for cells grown at a fixed specific growth rate under different nutrient limitations and for cells from aerobic glucose limited chemostat cultures grown at various specific growth rates."
Comments P.15352 right column bottom paragraph: "Other nutrient limitations were investigated in chemostat cultures grown at a fixed dilution rate of 0.10 h^-1. All aerobic hexose-limited cultures were completely respiratory at this dilution rate, as is evident from the absence of fermentation products in culture supernatants, a respiratory quotient close to 1, and a high biomass yield of 0.5 g of biomass•(g of glucose)^-1 (Table II). The anaerobic glucose-limited cultures were completely fermentative, with specific rates of glucose consumption that were 5-fold higher than the aerobic cultures (Table II). Aerobic ethanol-limited cultures served as a reference situation in which no net hexose uptake occurred during growth (Table II)." See note above table
