Toxicity of ethanol, n-butanol and iso-amyl alcohol inSaccharomyces cerevisiae when supplied separately and in mixtures

Abstract

Ethanol, n-butanol and iso-amyl alcohol concentration caused an exponential decrease in the viability ofSaccharomyces cerevisiae cells. n-Butanol and iso-amyl alcohol, both products of alcoholic fermentations, were found to act in a synergistic manner with each other and with ethanol in causing cell death in suspensions of non-growing cultures ofSaccharomyces cerevisiae.
