Abstract Evidence is presented that adaptation of yeast cells to ethanol results in a reduced loss of cell viability induced by exposure to that agent. In line with earlier work, an exponential model is shown to apply when the concentration of ethanol exceeds a critical value, beyond which cell growth cannot occur. Such an exponential model is consistent with the absolute theory of reaction rates. Adaptation of yeast cells to 7% w/v ethanol lowers the specific rate of cell death at various ethanol concentrations by a factor of some 40 fold compared to a non-adapted culture.
