Cell Size Influences the Reproductive Potential and Total Lifespan of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae Yeast as Revealed by the Analysis of Polyploid Strains

Table 2

The budding lifespan (number of generations), reproductive lifespan, postreproductive lifespan, and total lifespan of the yeast strains of different ploidy 1n–4n. Data are presented as the means ± SD from all tested cells during two independent experiments (80 cells). ; ; and compared to haploid (1n) strain (one-way ANOVA and Dunnett’s post hoc test).
