The interaction mechanism between zinc and the intact yeast cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was investigated by using the scanning electron microscopy with energy-dispersive X-ray analysis, as well as X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy (XAFS). Displacement of H+, K+, Mg2+, and Na+ during zinc uptake confirmed the existence of both covalent interactions and ionic interactions between Zn2+ and the microbe. Ion exchange mechanism played a role in zinc uptake. The local environment of… CONTINUE READING
