  • a Cells were grown for 7 d in YPDA and then transferred into the indicated medium. The cell volume was measured 2 h after transfer (mean volume, n = 50,000 cells ± SEM, two experiments).

  • b Cells were grown for 4 d in YPDA then transferred into the indicated medium. The cell length was measured 3 h after transfer (mean length ± SEM, n > 150, two experiments).
