Method Shake-flask cultivation,Chemostat cultivation,in a glucose-limited chemostat culture. Cell-size measurements were performed with a Coulter counter
Comments Although the dry weight per cell appeared to be fairly constant during the transition, the cell volume increased by ca. 40%, suggesting that the water content of the cells increased (Table 2). Change occurred over a 25-hour period.
