  • This article is exploring one of the possible explanations of how nitrogen, used in the form of ammonia in this study, can effect Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
  • It is well known that nitrogen is an essential nutrient that can increase growth, as utilized in fertilizer.
  • It is hypothesized that the actual influx of nitrogen may cause growth instead of the concentration.
  • This study tests explores if increasing concentration of ammonia while keeping a constant influx will cause nitrogen related responses.
  • The concentrations used resulted in testing from nitrogen limitation to nitrogen excess.
  • Overall, they conduct effects of physiological parameters, RNA expression, and enzyme expression.
