Knowledge of the individual lipid species that are associated with ethanol tolerance in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is necessary to understand potential mechanisms of how this organism uses these molecules to mitigate the toxic effects of ethanol. Three industrial yeast strains with varying degrees of ethanol tolerance were examined utilizing normal phase high-performance liquid chromatography and atmospheric pressure ionization-ion-trap mass spectrometry methods to quantitatively determine… CONTINUE READING
