Carbocyanine dye diS-C3(3) was repeatedly employed in monitoring the plasma membrane potential of yeast and other living cells. Four methods of measuring and evaluating probe fluorescence signal were used in different studies, based on following fluorescence parameters: fluorescence intensity emitted within a certain spectral interval, F(580)/F(560)(More)
The effect of alcohols on cell membrane proteins has originally been assumed to be mediated by their primary action on membrane lipid matrix. Many studies carried out later on both animal and yeast cells have revealed that ethanol and other alcohols inhibit the functions of various membrane channels, receptors and solute transport proteins, and a direct(More)
Fluorescence emission spectra of yeast cell suspensions stained with calcofluor have recently been identified as promising markers of variations in the quality of yeast cell wall. It is shown in this paper how the raw fluorescence spectra of calcofluor can be transformed to reliable spectral signatures of cell wall quality, which are independent of actual(More)
