Abstract

A comparison of barotolerance, thermotolerance and oxygen tolerance was made under different physiological conditions, such as heat shocked and recovered state, different growth phases and changes of physiological conditions by mutations. The three kinds of tolerance showed similar features under different physiological conditions. We suggest that the damage caused by hydrostatic pressure may be essentially the same as that due to high temperature and oxidative stress in yeast.
