Effect of adipic acid on the growth kinetics of S. cerevisiae CEN.PK 113-7D. Growth curves for cultures at pH 5 in the presence of adipic acid (a) and osmotic pressure control experiments (b). The corresponding concentration of adipic acid is reported in the osmotic pressure experiments. Relative µmax during respiro-fermentative growth (c) and respiratory growth (d). The results are expressed as relative µmax, corrected for the effect of osmotic pressure, to the µmax of cells grown without adipic acid. The results are given as the mean ± standard deviation from five replicates. The concentrations of adipic acid are: 0, 6, 12, 24, 48, 96, 192, 384 and 650 mM. Lag phase between the respiro-fermentative and the respiratory growth phase (e) where the bars represent mean ± standard deviation for five replicates
