Intracellular acidification has been considered one of a number of mechanisms underlying the inhibition of growth and fermentation by ethanol in yeast. However, most of the studies on the effect of ethanol on yeast intracellular pH (pHi) were carried out by using unadapted cells to which ethanol was added. In this paper we show that the pHi of exponential cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae IGC 3507 III grown in a medium with glucose and inhibitory concentrations of ethanol only decreased to… CONTINUE READING
