Abstract:

Spontaneous formation of macroscopic aggregates of yeast cells is termed flocculation. Because of the importance of the phenomenon to the brewer most of the studies have been confined to brewers yeast. An analogous phenomenon is a fission yeast is described here. Schizosaccharomyces pombe NCYC 132 was grown in 125 ml. Erlenmeyer flasks each containing 10 ml. malt-extract broth Oxoid, 2, wv. The inoculum consisted of 5,000,000 degrees stationary-phase yeast cells from a 24 h. static culture in the same medium in a tightly capped McCartney bottle. Cultures were shaken on a rotatory shaker at 150 rev.min. at 32 degrees the generation time was 120 min. Author
