FIGURE 1: Farnesol inhibits growth and protein synthesis. (A) Growth rates for the CAI4 strain and the gcn2Δ mutant at various concentrations of farnesol as indicated. (B) Rates of radiolabelled methionine incorporation were measured for the CAI4 strain and the gcn2Δ mutant in untreated conditions (ut) or after 1% butanol or 100 µM farnesol treatment. These were used to calculate the fold inhibition for three biological replicates (error bars = SEM).
