Cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae were grown aerobically and anaerobically, and levels of the protective compounds, cysteine and glutathione, and activities of defensive enzymes, catalase and superoxide dismutase, against an oxygen stress were determined and compared in both cells. Aerobiosis increased both the compounds and enzyme activities. The elevated… CONTINUE READING
