Acetaldehyde addition and pre-adaptation to the stressor together virtually eliminate the ethanol-induced lag phase in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.


AIMS To show that the ethanol-induced lag phase in yeast can be almost eliminated by combining pre-adaptation with acetaldehyde supplementation. METHODS AND RESULTS Pre-adaptation to noninhibitory concentrations of ethanol and supplementation of unadapted cultures with acetaldehyde each separately reduced the lag phase of ethanol-inhibited cultures by c… (More)
