A study of the budding ofSaccharomyces uvarum Beijerinck with the scanning electron microscope

  • J. -M. Belin


Vegetative cells ofSaccharomyces uvarum Beijerinck in the exponential growth phase were examined with the scanning electron microscope.

The existence of two types of scars — birth scars and bud scars — was confirmed. Birth scars had larger diameters than bud scars; both remained visible on old cells. The distribution of the buds on the mother cell did not appear to be a random one: there seemed to be a more or less emphasized cell polarity.
