Cells of Rhodotorula gracilis cultured in a liquid medium containing Zn only as impurity stop growing at a density of about 5·107 cells/ml. The addition of Zn during the prestationary or the stationary phase of growth reestablishes the growth rate, thus showing that Zn++ is a limiting factor for growth. An analysis of the changes of the fine structure and… CONTINUE READING
