Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been largely employed as model organism to evaluate the toxicity of chemicals due to its capacity of producing a cytochrome P-450 system similar to that found in mammalian cells. However in yeast the level of this enzyme system is affected by the cultivation conditions and also by the action of chemicals capable of..
