Kinetics and activation energetics of death in Saccharomyces cerevisiae induced by sulfur dioxide.

Abstract

Death of Saccharomyces cerevisiae induced by sulfur dioxide (K(2)S(2)O(2) was used as the SO(2) source) followed saturation kinetics. The enthalpy of activation of death was not affected by concentration over the range tested (5-150) mg/L of (K(2)S(2)O(2) at pH 3.4) and averaged 3.6 x 10(4) cal/mol as compared with 8.5 x 10(4) cal/mol for DeltaH of thermal… (More)
