Acetaldehyde stimulates ethanol-stressed Saccharomyces cerevisiae, grown on different carbon sources.

The ability of added acetaldehyde to stimulate growth in ethanol-stressed Saccharomyces cerevisiae is reported.

Year of Publication2008

This paper shows how acetaldehyde stimulates growth in ethanol-stressed Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The addition of acetaldehyde to ethanol-stressed yeast grown on either ethanol or glycerol resulted in a significant decrease in lag time and an increase in specific growth rate. The addition of propionaldehyde had a similar stimulatory effect.
