Effects of gas pressurization with ethylene on the ultrastructure of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Abstract

We investigated ultrastructural changes in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae when exposed to compressed ethylene gas. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) revealed that intracellular organelles in yeast cells treated with compressed ethylene at up to 0.640 MPa (6.4 atm), especially the nuclear and plasma membranes, were seriously damaged.
